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

Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra crucial as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the toughest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, County Line Mechanical LLC has several ways you can keep your indoor air as clean 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 regularly exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are retaining your system’s efficiency.

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 rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. Moreover, 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

Many households breed large amounts of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering these things out of your air. Through 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.
