How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra important as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the worst time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Temp Air System Inc has some ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible. Regularly Change Your Air Filters Your air filter guards you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not be the case if you’re not regularly exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s productivity. UV Germicidal Lights Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity obtainable that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to decrease 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 constantly running. Duct Cleaning Many households produce a lot of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering bad things out of your air. Over time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them serviced will remove dirt, debris and other pollutants, and unclog your system. You’ll find that that cleaning your air ducts will have the enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
