How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra important as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the hardest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & 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 trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t occur if you’re not consistently exchanging 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 destroy pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity available 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 increase. What’s even better is that 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 consecutively running. Duct Cleaning Many households generate large amounts of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable 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 pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe easier. We realize your home has unique needs and we have different options to help enhance your indoor air quality.
