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

Regularly, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma attacks. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra crucial as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the worst time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning has some ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t happen if you’re not regularly exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s efficiency.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity produced that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to reduce 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 generate large amounts of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering it out of your air.
