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

Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma attacks. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly crucial 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, Air Concepts of Middle Georgia has a few 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 trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t be the case if you’re not consistently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s productivity.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to destroy pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity obtainable that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to reduce 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 constantly running.

Duct Cleaning

Majority of households generate a lot of dust and dirt each 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 serviced 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 better.
