5 ways to control allergens in your home

Indy Style

Allergy season is in full-swing in Indiana!  People often wonder if there’s anything they can do to control allergens in their home.  While there is no cure-all (especially if your allergen trigger is pollen), there are some options to help.

Renee Lucas, Owner, LCS Heating & Cooling, shares 5 ways to control allergens in your home: 

•    A good filtration system:  Media filter vs 1″ filter.  Some advanced filtration systems have hospital-grade filters in them!
•    Air Purifiers/UV Lights:  Kills bacteria & viruses, reduces allergens and controls odors
•    Turn the fan setting to “ON” on your thermostat to constantly keep air circulating through the filter and/or Air Purifier
•    Duct Sealing:  Leaky ducts allow air from the attic & crawl (excess dust, insulation particles, etc) to circulate throughout the home.    
•    Duct Cleaning: Cleans the ductwork throughout the room to remove dust, pet hair and debris (below is an image of a dirty air duct on the left vs. a clean air duct on the right)
