How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Regularly, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the worst time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Cytech Heating & Cooling has several ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible. Regularly Change Your Air Filters Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t be the case if you’re not frequently 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 end pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity produced that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is defeated, 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 Majority of households produce a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering it 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
