How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma attacks. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra important as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the worst time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Dynamic Comfort Solutions has several ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible. Regularly Change Your Air Filters Your air filter guards you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not occur if you’re not regularly replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s efficiency. UV Germicidal Lights Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to destroy pollutants when they spread 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 destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Additionally, germicidal lights have been found to decrease 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 actively running. Duct Cleaning Majority of households generate a lot of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering it 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe easier.
