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

Air Quality

Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma attacks. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly crucial as we shut 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, Langford Cooling has several ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh 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 happen if you’re not frequently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s productivity.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they move 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 gone, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to decrease the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they continue to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t consecutively running.

Duct Cleaning

Most households produce a great deal of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering it out of your air. Over 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.
