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

Regularly, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma attacks. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra crucial as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the hardest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, PWA Heating & Cooling Inc has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as clean as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t happen if you’re not consistently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, 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 end pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity produced that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. What’s even better is that 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 constantly running.

Duct Cleaning

Most households generate a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering bad things out of your air. Through 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.
