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 outbursts. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra crucial as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the toughest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Faust Air Conditioning and Heating has some ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy 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 regularly changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, 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 terminate pollutants when they circulate 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. Once the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to decrease 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 consecutively running.

Duct Cleaning

Majority of households produce a lot of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering these things out of your air. Through 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 enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
