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 outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly important 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 some 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 catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not occur if you’re not regularly exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s productivity.

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 destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. 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 a lot 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 comfortably.
