The global growth of COVID-19 has likely flipped your regular schedule upside down.

When times feel uncertain you can feel good in knowing your house is your safe area. You’re possibly spending more time there today. As a result, your indoor air quality is now more crucial than ever.

Were you aware we can install indoor air quality products in your house that deliver hospital-grade filtration? These options can clear bacteria from your air, as well as allergens, odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Modern homes are securely sealed, which is fantastic for energy efficiency. But it also means your inside air may be worse than the air outside. In reality, the EPA says it can be two to five times worse than outdoors. This may be problematic since we spend about 90% of our days inside.

There are many things that can lead to poor indoor air quality, including cleaning products and air fresheners. These might result in headaches and exasperate allergies and asthma.

There are several things you can do to improve your air quality. Some include upgraded air filters, an air purification system or an ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light.

Not certain which option is a good fit for your house? Our expert technicians can complete an indoor air quality audit. Based off of the results, we can then suggest the ideal option for your household’s distinctive needs.

Air Filtration

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

One of the most common and least expensive filters, flat fiberglass filters, are graded between 1 and 4 on the MERV register. Pleated filters are a little bit better, graded between 8 and 12.

We advise upgrading to at least MERV 13, such as the HC13 Media Air Cleaner, for the optimal results. This filter gives fresher air while lowering energy use.

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

Air Purification

Lennox has some of the greatest air purification equipment you can purchase. PureAir™ S and Healthy Climate™ PureAir Air Purification Systems offer hospital-grade filtration while managing all categories of indoor air contaminants.

This powerful equipment can take care of:

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

UV Germicidal Lights

A UV germicidal light is added within your heating and cooling equipment. Its strong rays eliminate bacteria and mold within seconds.

If your family suffers from allergies or asthma, this unit could give relief. Especially if you reside in a muggy area where bacteria and mold flourish.

This light also has an extra advantage for your heating and cooling equipment. It may help it last for a longer period of time and heat and cool more efficiently, since it keeps the internal parts clean.

Our air quality engineers recommend installing one of these lights with an enhanced filter, such as our Carbon Clean 16® Media Air Cleaner, for optimal results. This filter provides industry-leading MERV 16 filtration in addition to carbon-coated fibers to remove particles from your home’s air. It fulfills this without restricting your comfort system’s airflow.

Whole-Home Humidifiers

Acquiring even humidity in your residence can help keep your family healthy when it’s chilly. It can help with sore throats, itchy skin and chapped lips, among further cold weather annoyances.

If you don’t know what your residence’s humidity level is, we’ll determine it during your indoor air quality audit. While the range fluctuates based off of outdoor temperatures, HVAC professionals usually recommend keeping it between 40–60 percent.

You can accomplish this ideal range by using a whole-home humidifier. This equipment typically functions with your furnace or air handler to give optimum humidity throughout your home. Some equipment, like the Healthy Climate® Whole-Home Power Humidifier, use a built-in fan to spread humidity when your comfort 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.
