How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Frequently, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma attacks. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more important as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the toughest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Ken Parker Service Inc has some ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible. Regularly Change Your Air Filters Your air filter guards you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t occur if you’re not frequently changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s effectiveness. UV Germicidal Lights Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to destroy pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity obtainable that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. 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 work to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t constantly running. Duct Cleaning Majority of households breed a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering these things out of your air. Throughout 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 pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
