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

Air Quality

Regularly, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra vital 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, 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. 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 can’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 productivity.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity obtainable that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to minimize the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they succeed 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 responsible for filtering bad things out of your air. Throughout 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 better.
