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

Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes more vital as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the worst time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. has some ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t happen if you’re not consistently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, 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 destroy pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity obtainable that destroy 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 continue to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t constantly running.

Duct Cleaning

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