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

Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the worst time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning has a few 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 catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not be the case if you’re not frequently replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are retaining 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 most UV intensity produced that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. 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 actively running.

Duct Cleaning

Many households breed a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering it out of your air. Over 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 better.
