There are five basic strategies for outsmarting indoor air pollution:
Identify the problem
The first step toward better indoor air is to identify the types of pollutants present in the home. The best way to do this is to schedule an in-home air-quality test with your local Lennox dealer.
Reduce concentrations of particles and bioaerosols
Routine cleaning and housekeeping helps reduce indoor air pollutants, but these simple fixes are not cure-alls. Some contaminants are so small that they may escape through the vacuum or never land on a surface. Lennox HEPA filtration systems, electronic air cleaners, high-efficiency air filters capture even the smallest of particles and bioaerosols.
Reduce or eliminate chemical vapors and odors
Chemical vapors and odors can come from many different sources inside and outside the home. Once inside the home, these potentially toxic pollutants circulate through the ductwork, entering every room and living space. A Lennox air purification system removes and destroys 50% of household chemical vapors and odors within 24 hours.
Ventilate Your Home
Today’s modern homes are well-insulated and sealed to conserve energy, which means airborne pollutants have no way to escape. Lennox® ventilation systems help remove particles and bioaerosols by exchanging stale, recirculated indoor air with fresh, filtered outside air.
Control Temperature and Humidity
Improper humidity levels and high temperatures can actually increase concentrations of particles and bioaerosols. Lennox ComfortSense™ 7000 Series Touchscreen Thermostats regulate moisture levels and temperatures to improve indoor air quality and enhance comfort.
