How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Regularly, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly crucial as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the hardest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Nisair Air Conditioning has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible. Regularly Change Your Air Filters Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t occur if you’re not regularly exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, 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 produced that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to reduce the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they continue to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t actively running. Duct Cleaning Majority of households breed a lot of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering it out of your air. Through time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them cleaned will remove dirt, debris and other pollutants, and unclog your system. You’ll find that that cleaning your air ducts will have the pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
