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

Air Quality

Regularly, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more important as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the worst time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. has several ways you can keep your indoor air as clean as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t occur if you’re not consistently replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, 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 greatest UV intensity produced that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is defeated, 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 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 responsible for filtering bad things out of your air. Through 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.
