How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 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 board our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the toughest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Triton HVAC & Refrigeration has some ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible. Regularly Change Your Air Filters Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t be the case if you’re not consistently changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are retaining your system’s effectiveness. UV Germicidal Lights Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to destroy pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity produced that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to minimize the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they work to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t actively running. Duct Cleaning Majority of households produce a great deal of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable 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.
