How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the worst time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Tri County Air Care LLC has several ways you can keep your indoor air as clean 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 happen if you’re not regularly changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are retaining 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. Since the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Moreover, 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 Majority of households generate large amounts of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is responsible 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.
