The global transmission of COVID-19 has likely flipped your daily routine all over the place.

When times feel uncertain you can take peace in knowing your residence is your safe retreat. You’re likely spending more time there now. 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 options can remove bacteria from your air, as well as allergens, odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

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

There are many things that can cause poor indoor air quality, including cleaning products and air fresheners. These might lead to headaches and worsen 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 sure which system is right for your house? Our knowledgeable technicians can complete an indoor air quality audit. Based on our findings, we can then recommend the best choice for your household’s distinct needs.

Air Filtration

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

One of the most ordinary and least expensive filters, flat fiberglass filters, are rated between 1 and 4 on the MERV system. Pleated filters are somewhat better, rated between 8 and 12.

We recommend upgrading to no less than MERV 13, such as the HC13 Media Air Cleaner, for the optimal effect. This filter provides fresher air while reducing energy consumption.

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

Air Purification

Lennox offers some of the greatest air purification units you can buy. PureAir™ S and Healthy Climate™ PureAir Air Purification Systems deliver hospital-grade filtration while handling all categories of indoor air contaminants.

These powerful units can take care of:

  • 99.9% of allergens, like 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 installed inside your comfort equipment. Its powerful rays wipe out bacteria and mold within seconds.

If your family suffers from allergies or asthma, this equipment could offer relief. Especially if you live in a muggy area where bacteria and mold grow quickly.

This light also provides an additional advantage for your comfort unit. It might help it last longer and run more efficiently, as 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 optimal effect. This filter delivers industry-leading MERV 16 filtration plus carbon-coated fibers to remove particles from your house’s air. It does all of this without restricting your heating and cooling unit’s airflow.

Whole-Home Humidifiers

Getting even humidity in your house might help keep your family in good health during the winter. It can aid sore throats, itchy skin and cracked lips, amidst added cold weather bothers.

If you aren’t sure of what your residence’s humidity range is, we’ll measure it when we complete your indoor air quality audit. While the range fluctuates based on outdoor temperatures, HVAC pros usually advise keeping it between 40–60 percent.

You can reach this optimal range by installing a whole-home humidifier. This unit usually functions with your furnace or air handler to deliver optimal humidity across your home. Some units, like the Healthy Climate® Whole-Home Power Humidifier, use an incorporated fan to move humidity while your HVAC system isn’t running.

*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.
