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

Frequently, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the hardest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Air Houston Mechanical LLC has some ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy 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 will not be the case if you’re not regularly exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s efficiency.

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 most UV intensity available that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is defeated, 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

Many households generate large amounts of dust and dirt every 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 pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
