The international growth of COVID-19 has likely flipped your daily calendar into a jumble.

In uncertain times you can feel good in knowing your residence is your safe space. You’re likely spending more time there nowadays. That’s why your indoor air quality is now more important than ever.

Did you realize we can install indoor air quality products in your residence that provide hospital-grade filtration? These solutions can clear bacteria from your air, as well as allergens, odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Modern houses are firmly closed, which is fantastic for energy efficiency. But it also means your indoor air might be worse than the air outside. In actuality, the EPA says it can be two to five times worse than outdoors. This may lead to issues since we spend about 90% of our lifetime indoors.

There are many things that can contribute to poor indoor air quality, like cleaning products and air fresheners. These might lead to headaches and irritate allergies and asthma.

There’s a combination of actions you can take to enhance your air quality. Some include better air filters, an air purification system or an ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light.

Not sure which solution is right for your residence? Our knowledgeable pros can do an indoor air quality audit. Based off of the results, we can then advise you on the ideal solution for your family’s unique needs.

Air Filtration

When comparing air filters, it’s essential to consider the MERV rating, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. This measures how efficiently it filters air.

One of the most average and lowest priced filters, flat fiberglass filters, are graded between 1 and 4 on the MERV register. Pleated filters are somewhat better, ranking between 8 and 12.

We advise installing at minimum MERV 13, like the HC13 Media Air Cleaner, for the optimal results. This filter provides clearer air while reducing energy needs.

High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are regarded as the best in air filtration, since they’re usually in use in hospitals. They’re effective at trapping 99.97–99.99% of indoor pollutants, including pollen, pet dander and smoke.

Air Purification

Lennox provides some of the best air purification equipment you can get. PureAir™ S and Healthy Climate™ PureAir Air Purification Systems deliver hospital-grade filtration while handling all kinds of indoor air contaminants.

These powerful units can eliminate:

  • 99.9% of allergens, such as pollen, dust and pet dander.
  • 95% of bacteria-sized particles, including ones that contribute to strep throat.
  • 50% of VOCs and odors within 24 hours.

UV Germicidal Lights

A UV germicidal light is added on the inside of your comfort equipment. Its powerful rays eradicate bacteria and mold within seconds.

If your family suffers from allergies or asthma, this system may deliver relief. Especially if you reside in a muggy climate where bacteria and mold thrive.

This light also has an added perk for your comfort equipment. It could help it run longer and operate more efficiently, since it keeps the internal parts clean.

Our air quality engineers advise combining one of these lights with an enhanced filter, such as our Carbon Clean 16® Media Air Cleaner, for the greatest results. This filter provides industry-leading MERV 16 filtration plus carbon-coated fibers to catch particles in your house’s air. It does all of this without decreasing your heating and cooling system’s airflow.

Whole-Home Humidifiers

Acquiring correct humidity in your home could help keep your loved ones from getting sick when it’s chilly. It can help with sore throats, itchy skin and chapped lips, amidst further cold weather irritations.

If you don’t know what your residence’s humidity percentage is, we’ll figure that out while we do your indoor air quality audit. While the range fluctuates based off of outdoor temperatures, HVAC pros usually recommend keeping it between 40–60 percent.

You can accomplish this optimum range with a whole-home humidifier. This equipment usually works with your furnace or air handler to give optimal humidity throughout your home. Some models, like the Healthy Climate® Whole-Home Power Humidifier, use a built-in fan to spread humidity during the time your HVAC system isn’t operating.

*Based on in-duct testing that shows Healthy Climate® filters reduce airflow restriction. Greater restriction of airflow creates a greater load on a unit’s fan motor, increasing energy consumption.
