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

Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma attacks. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes more vital as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the hardest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. has several ways you can keep your indoor air as clean 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 will not happen if you’re not consistently changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s efficiency.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to destroy pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity available that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to decrease 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 consecutively running.

Duct Cleaning

Many households produce large amounts of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering it out of your air. Through time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them serviced 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.
