The international transmission of COVID-19 has likely flipped your {regular|typical|daily] routine into a jumble.

In uncertain times you can take comfort in knowing your residence is your safe space. You’re possibly spending more time there now. Consequently your indoor air quality is now more crucial than ever.

Did you know we can install indoor air quality products in your residence that offer hospital-grade filtration? These products can remove bacteria from your air, as well as allergens, odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Up-to-date residences are tightly sealed, which is good for energy efficiency. But it also means your inside air could be worse than the air outside. In reality, the EPA says it can be two to five times worse than outdoors. This might cause a problem since we spend about 90% of our time inside.

There are many things that can contribute to poor indoor air quality, such as cleaning products and air fresheners. These can result in headaches and exasperate allergies and asthma.

There’s a combination of things you can do to improve your air quality. Some include better air filters, an air purification system or an ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light.

Not certain which solution is best for your house? Our knowledgeable techs can perform an indoor air quality audit. Based on our findings, we can then recommend the best solution for your home’s unique needs.

Air Filtration

When comparing air filters, you should review the MERV rating, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. This assesses how efficiently it filters pollutants.

One of the most ordinary and lowest priced filters, flat fiberglass filters, are graded between 1 and 4 on the MERV register. Pleated filters are somewhat better, rated between 8 and 12.

We suggest getting no less than MERV 13, for example the HC13 Media Air Cleaner, for the optimal effect. This filter provides cleaner air while reducing energy consumption.

High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are deemed the best in air filtration, since they’re typically in use in hospitals. They’re effective at trapping 99.97–99.99% of indoor pollutants, like pollen, pet dander and smoke.

Air Purification

Lennox offers some of the greatest air purification systems you can buy. PureAir™ S and Healthy Climate™ PureAir Air Purification Systems offer hospital-grade filtration while taking care of all kinds of indoor air contaminants.

These powerful units can take care of:

  • 99.9% of allergens, like pollen, dust and pet dander.
  • 95% of bacteria-sized particles, like ones that lead to strep throat.
  • 50% of VOCs and odors within 24 hours.

UV Germicidal Lights

A UV germicidal light is installed within your HVAC system. Its powerful rays eradicate bacteria and mold within seconds.

If your family struggles with allergies or asthma, this system could give relief. Especially if you reside in an extremely hot climate where bacteria and mold flourish.

This light also provides an additional advantage for your comfort system. It can help it last for a greater period of time and run more efficiently, as it keeps the internal parts clean.

Our air quality engineers suggest using one of these lights with an enhanced filter, such as our Carbon Clean 16® Media Air Cleaner, for the greatest results. This filter delivers industry-leading MERV 16 filtration in addition to carbon-coated fibers to trap particles in your house’s air. It completes this without decreasing your HVAC system’s airflow.

Whole-Home Humidifiers

Having correct humidity in your residence may help keep your household in good health when it’s cold. It can assist with sore throats, itchy skin and chapped lips, among further cold weather annoyances.

If you aren’t aware of what your house’s humidity level is, we’ll determine it during your indoor air quality audit. While the range fluctuates based off of outdoor temperatures, HVAC experts usually recommend keeping it between 40–60 percent.

You can reach this optimum range by using a whole-home humidifier. This system generally functions with your furnace or air handler to provide optimal humidity throughout your house. Some models, like the Healthy Climate® Whole-Home Power Humidifier, contain an incorporated fan to spread humidity during the time your comfort unit isn’t on.

*Based on in-duct testing that shows Healthy Climate® filters reduce airflow restriction. Greater restriction of airflow creates a greater load on a unit’s fan motor, increasing energy consumption.
