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

Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the toughest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Heartland Heating & Cooling has some ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t occur if you’re not frequently replacing 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 terminate pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity obtainable that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to decrease 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 consecutively running.

Duct Cleaning

Majority of households generate large amounts of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is accountable 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 easier.
