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

Frequently, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma attacks. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the toughest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Toptec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical has several ways you can keep your indoor air as clean as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t be the case if you’re not frequently replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s effectiveness.

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 highest UV intensity produced that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to decrease the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they continue 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 each 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 serviced 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.
