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 often is the worst time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Contra Costa Heating & AC has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy 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 won’t occur if you’re not regularly exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are maintaining 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 rid 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 minimize the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they continue to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t constantly running.

Duct Cleaning

Majority of households generate a great deal of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering these things out of your air. Over 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 easier.
