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

Frequently, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma attacks. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more vital as we close up 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, Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC has a few 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 be the case if you’re not frequently changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are retaining your system’s effectiveness.

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 greatest UV intensity available 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. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to minimize 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

Most households generate a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering these things out of your air. Through 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 comfortably.
