Why Your Houses Indoor Air Quality Matters

The worldwide transmission of COVID-19 has likely shifted your regular calendar upside down.

In uncertain times, you can take peace in knowing your house is your safe area. You’re likely spending much more more time there now. That’s why your indoor air quality is now more crucial than ever.

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

Modern houses are securely airtight, which is fantastic for energy efficiency. But it also means your home’s air could be more contaminated than the air outside. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says it can be two to five times inferior than outdoors. This could be troublesome, since the EPA estimates we spend about 90% of our lifetime in a building.

There are a lot of factors that can cause poor indoor air quality, such as cleaning products and air fresheners. These might result in headaches and exasperate allergies and asthma.

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

Not sure which option is a good fit for your residence? Our skilled pros can perform an indoor air quality audit. We’ll assess several details that affect your air, such as dust levels, VOCs and ventilation. Based upon our findings, we can then suggest the best solution for your home’s distinctive needs.

Air Filtration

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

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

We recommend buying no less than a MERV 13, for example, the HC13 Media Air Cleaner, for optimal outcome. This filter gives fresher air while reducing energy needs*.

High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are deemed the benchmark in air filtration, since they’re usually installed in hospitals. They’re effective at catching 99.97–99.99% of indoor pollutants, like pollen, pet dander and smoke.

Regardless of whatever filter you pick, you can rest easy knowing they’ve been thoroughly tested. They have the lowest airflow restriction in the industry, which keeps your HVAC system running smoothly.

Air Purification

Lennox® has some of the greatest air purification equipment you can purchase. PureAir™ S and Healthy Climate™ PureAir Air Purification Systems deliver hospital-grade filtration while taking care of all types of indoor air contaminants.

This powerful equipment can wipe out:

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

UV Germicidal Lights

A UV germicidal light is installed within your heating and cooling unit. Its strong rays wipe out bacteria and mold within seconds.

If your family struggles with allergies or asthma, this equipment could deliver much-needed relief. Especially if you live in an extremely hot part of the country where bacteria and mold grow quickly.

This light also provides an added bonus for your heating and cooling system. It might help it work longer and operate more efficiently, because it keeps the internal components clean.

Our air quality engineers suggest installing one of these lights with an improved filter, such as our Carbon Clean 16® Media Air Cleaner, for the best results. This filter offers industry-leading MERV 16 filtration combined with carbon-coated fibers to remove particles from your residence’s air. It completes this without limiting your HVAC system’s airflow.

Whole-Home Humidifiers

Getting even humidity in your house might help keep your loved ones healthy in the winter months. It can help with sore throats, flaky skin and peeling lips, in addition to added cold weather irritations.

If you aren’t sure of what your residence’s humidity level is, we’ll determine it while we do your indoor air quality audit. While the range varies based on outdoor temperatures, HVAC professionals typically recommend keeping it between 40–60 percent.

You can accomplish this ideal range by using a whole-home humidifier. This system typically accompanies your furnace or air handler to deliver the right level of humidity across your residence. Some equipment, like the Healthy Climate® Whole-Home Power Humidifier, contain a built-in fan to spread humidity during the time your HVAC equipment isn’t operating.
