How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall

Air Quality

Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the toughest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Innovative Mechanical, LLC has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as clean as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter guards you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t occur if you’re not frequently changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, 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 destroy pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity available that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. What’s even better is that 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 generate a lot of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering bad things out of your air. Over 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 easier.
