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

Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma attacks. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the worst time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, JTech Mechanical has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter guards 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 retaining 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 greatest UV intensity obtainable 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 multiply. Additionally, 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 actively 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 it out of your air. Throughout 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
