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

Air Quality

Frequently, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the hardest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, C-N-O Comfort Zone has several ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t occur if you’re not consistently replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are retaining your system’s productivity.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity available that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. Additionally, germicidal lights have been found to reduce 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 produce large amounts of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering these things out of your air. Throughout time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them cleaned 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 comfortably.
