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

Regularly, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the toughest time of year for victims 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 fresh 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 will not happen if you’re not consistently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, 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 terminate pollutants when they move 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. Since the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to reduce 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 consecutively running.

Duct Cleaning

Majority of households generate large amounts of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering these things 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 enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe easier.
