How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma attacks. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes more important as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the hardest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Mr. Air Repair has several ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible. Regularly Change Your Air Filters Your air filter guards you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t be the case if you’re not consistently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s effectiveness. UV Germicidal Lights Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity obtainable that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to minimize the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they succeed to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t constantly running. Duct Cleaning Majority of households produce large amounts of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering it out of your air. Throughout time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them inspected will remove dirt, debris and other pollutants, and unclog your system. You’ll find that that cleaning your air ducts will have the pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
