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

Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the hardest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning has several ways you can keep your indoor air as clean as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t occur if you’re not frequently changing 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 destroy pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity produced that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After 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 actively running.

Duct Cleaning

Most households produce a lot of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering these things 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 enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe easier.
