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

Regularly, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma attacks. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the hardest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Miller Climate Control LLC has some 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 happen if you’re not frequently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s effectiveness.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity produced 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. Additionally, 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 actively running.

Duct Cleaning

Many households produce large amounts of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering it 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
