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

Frequently, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma attacks. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra important as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the toughest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning 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 will not happen 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 productivity.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity obtainable that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. 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 actively running.

Duct Cleaning

Many households breed a lot of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering it out of your air. Throughout 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 easier.
