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

Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra crucial 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, Woody's Sudden Service 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 trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t be the case if you’re not frequently exchanging 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 greatest UV intensity available that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. Additionally, germicidal lights have been found to minimize 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

Majority of households produce large amounts of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering bad things out of your air. Over 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 pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
