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 attacks. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the toughest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating 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 catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not occur if you’re not frequently changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, 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 destroy pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity produced 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 increase. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to reduce 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 breed a great deal of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering it out of your air. Through 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 enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
