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

Frequently, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly important as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the worst time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, McNatt Inc has several ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not happen if you’re not consistently replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s efficiency.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity available 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 increase. Additionally, germicidal lights have been found to reduce 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 actively running.

Duct Cleaning

Many households breed 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 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.
