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

Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more vital as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the hardest time of year for victims 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 won’t happen 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 efficiency.

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 most UV intensity produced 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. 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 consecutively running.

Duct Cleaning

Majority of households produce large amounts of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering these things out of your air. Over 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 better.

We understand your home has unique needs and we have many solutions to help better your indoor air quality. Call us at 662-281-1231 for ideas about improving your indoor air quality or with any questions you have about your home comfort in general.
