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

Regularly, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra important as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the hardest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t be the case if you’re not regularly changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are retaining 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 obtainable that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to decrease the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they work to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t consecutively running.

Duct Cleaning

Majority of households produce a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering these 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 pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
