The worldwide growth of COVID-19 has likely turned your {regular|typical|daily] schedule all over the place.

When times feel uncertain you can take comfort in knowing your residence is your safe retreat. You’re probably spending more time there nowadays. That’s why your indoor air quality is now more crucial than ever.

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

Up-to-date homes are firmly closed, which is great for energy efficiency. But it also means your inside air can be worse than the air outside. In fact, the EPA says it can be two to five times worse than outdoors. This might be troublesome since we spend about 90% of our time inside.

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

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

Not certain which option is a good fit for your home? Our expert professionals can conduct an indoor air quality audit. Based on our findings, we can then advise you on the ideal choice for your household’s distinct needs.

Air Filtration

When browsing air filters, you should look at the MERV rating, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. This gauges how successfully it filters pollutants.

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 somewhat better, graded between 8 and 12.

We recommend installing at minimum MERV 13, for instance the HC13 Media Air Cleaner, for the most ideal outcome. This filter provides clearer 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 catching 99.97–99.99% of indoor pollutants, including pollen, pet dander and smoke.

Air Purification

Lennox has some of the most advanced air purification systems you can get. PureAir™ S and Healthy Climate™ PureAir Air Purification Systems deliver hospital-grade filtration while taking care of all categories of indoor air contaminants.

These powerful units can take care of:

  • 99.9% of allergens, such as pollen, dust and pet dander.
  • 95% of bacteria-sized particles, such as 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 comfort unit. Its penetrating rays eliminate bacteria and mold within seconds.

If your family has allergies or asthma, this unit could give relief. Especially if you live in a humid area where bacteria and mold grow quickly.

This light also offers an added advantage for your comfort unit. It can help it last longer and operate more efficiently, since it keeps the internal pieces clean.

Our air quality engineers suggest using one of these lights with an upgraded filter, such as our Carbon Clean 16® Media Air Cleaner, for optimal outcome. This filter provides industry-leading MERV 16 filtration combined with carbon-coated fibers to trap particles in your house’s air. It completes this without restricting your heating and cooling unit’s airflow.

Whole-Home Humidifiers

Getting correct humidity in your home could help keep your family healthy when it’s cold. It can help with sore throats, flaky skin and cracked lips, in addition to further cold weather annoyances.

If you aren’t sure of what your house’s humidity range is, we’ll determine it during your indoor air quality audit. While the range varies based off of outdoor temperatures, HVAC pros typically suggest keeping it between 40–60 percent.

You can accomplish this optimum range with a whole-home humidifier. This equipment generally works with your furnace or air handler to provide the right level of humidity around your home. Some models, like the Healthy Climate® Whole-Home Power Humidifier, have a built-in fan to spread humidity when your heating unit 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.
