The worldwide growth of COVID-19 has likely shifted your regular calendar upside down.
When things feel uncertain, you can feel good in knowing your residence is your safe retreat. You’re likely spending more time there now. Consequently your indoor air quality is now more crucial than ever.
Did you know we can install indoor air quality products in your house that offer hospital-grade filtration? These products can remove bacteria from your air, as well as allergens, odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Today’s residences are tightly sealed, which is good for energy efficiency. But it also means your home’s air could be worse than the air outside. In actuality, 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 in a building.
There are many elements that can lead to poor indoor air quality, like cleaning products and air fresheners. These may create headaches and exasperate allergies and asthma.
There are a few 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 sure which option is a good fit for your home? Our skilled technicians can perform an indoor air quality audit. Based off of our findings, we can then recommend the most fitting choice for your family’s distinct needs.

When browsing air filters, it’s important to review the MERV rating, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. This measures how effectively it filters pollutants.
One of the most ordinary and most economical filters, flat fiberglass filters, are graded between 1 and 4 on the MERV scale. Pleated filters are slightly better, ranking between 8 and 12.
We advise installing no less than a MERV 13, for instance, the HC13 Media Air Cleaner, for the best effect. This filter delivers clearer air while limiting energy use*.
High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are considered the best in air filtration, since they’re frequently used in hospitals. They’re effective at capturing 99.97–99.99% of indoor pollutants, such as pollen, pet dander and smoke.

Lennox® provides some of the most advanced air purification units you can purchase. PureAir™ S and Healthy Climate™ PureAir Air Purification Systems offer hospital-grade filtration while taking care of all kinds of indoor air contaminants.
These powerful systems can take care of:
- 99.9% of allergens, such as pollen, dust and pet dander
- 95% of bacteria-sized particles, such as ones that cause strep throat
- 50% of VOCs and odors within 24 hours
UV Germicidal Lights
A UV germicidal light is added within your comfort system. Its powerful rays eliminate bacteria and mold within seconds.
If your family suffers from allergies or asthma, this equipment may provide relief. Especially if you reside in an extremely hot climate where bacteria and mold flourish.
This light also provides an additional perk for your heating and cooling equipment. It might help it run for a longer period of time and heat and cool more efficiently, as it keeps the internal pieces clean.
Our air quality engineers recommend using one of these lights with an enhanced filter, such as our Carbon Clean 16® Media Air Cleaner, for optimal effect. This filter delivers industry-leading MERV 16 filtration in addition to carbon-coated fibers to trap particles in your residence’s air. It does all of this without limiting your comfort unit’s airflow.
Acquiring balanced humidity in your house can help keep your household in good health when it’s chilly. It can help with sore throats, dry skin and peeling lips, amidst other cold weather bothers.
If you don’t know what your home’s humidity level is, we’ll determine it during your indoor air quality audit. While the range varies based upon outdoor temperatures, HVAC professionals usually advise keeping it between 40–60 percent.
You can accomplish this optimum range by using a whole-home humidifier. This equipment generally works with your furnace or air handler to give the right level of humidity around your residence. Some units, like the Healthy Climate® Whole-Home Power Humidifier, use an incorporated fan to circulate humidity while your heating equipment isn’t on.
