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 outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the toughest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Custom Air Systems Inc has some 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 catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t happen if you’re not frequently replacing 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 produced that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. 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 actively running. Duct Cleaning Majority of households breed a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering bad 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 enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
