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

Air Quality

Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes more vital as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the worst time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. has a few 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 changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s productivity.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity produced that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to reduce the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they continue to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t actively running.

Duct Cleaning

Majority of households generate large amounts of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering these things 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 easier.

We realize your home has unique needs and we have many solutions to help better your indoor air quality. Call us at 662-350-0343 for ideas about improving your indoor air quality or with any questions you have about your home comfort in general.
