The worldwide spread of COVID-19 has likely turned your daily routine upside down.
When times feel uncertain you can feel good in knowing your residence is your safe area. You’re probably 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 deliver hospital-grade filtration? These products can eliminate bacteria from your air, as well as allergens, odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Today’s residences are firmly sealed, which is fantastic for energy efficiency. But it also means your indoor air might be worse than the air outside. In actuality, the EPA says it can be two to five times worse than outdoors. This could cause a problem since we spend about 90% of our time indoors.
There are many elements that can lead to poor indoor air quality, such as cleaning products and air fresheners. These can result in headaches and exasperate allergies and asthma.
There are several actions you can take to enhance your air quality. Some include enhanced air filters, an air purification system or an ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light.
Not certain which system is best for your house? Our skilled techs can perform an indoor air quality audit. Based off of the outcome, we can then suggest the best solution for your household’s distinctive needs.

When browsing air filters, you should look at the MERV rating, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. This assesses how efficiently it filters contaminants.
One of the most ordinary and most economical filters, flat fiberglass filters, are graded between 1 and 4 on the MERV system. Pleated filters are slightly better, rated between 8 and 12.
We suggest installing at least MERV 13, such as the HC13 Media Air Cleaner, for the best results. This filter gives clearer air while reducing energy use.
High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are considered the benchmark in air filtration, because they’re frequently used in hospitals. They’re effective at capturing 99.97–99.99% of indoor pollutants, including pollen, pet dander and smoke.

Lennox offers some of the best air purification units you can purchase. PureAir™ S and Healthy Climate™ PureAir Air Purification Systems provide hospital-grade filtration while managing 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, like 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 has allergies or asthma, this equipment might provide relief. Especially if you are in a muggy climate where bacteria and mold thrive.
This light also offers an additional advantage for your heating and cooling unit. It can help it run longer and operate more efficiently, as it keeps the internal pieces clean.
Our air quality engineers suggest using one of these lights with an enhanced filter, such as our Carbon Clean 16® Media Air Cleaner, for the best outcome. This filter offers industry-leading MERV 16 filtration in addition to carbon-coated fibers to catch particles in your home’s air. It completes this without decreasing your comfort system’s airflow.
Acquiring even humidity in your home can help keep your family healthy when it’s chilly. It can aid sore throats, flaky skin and chapped lips, among other cold weather bothers.
If you aren’t aware of what your home’s humidity range is, we’ll determine it while we do your indoor air quality audit. While the range varies based on outdoor temperatures, HVAC pros generally advise keeping it between 40–60 percent.
You can achieve this ideal range by installing a whole-home humidifier. This system typically functions with your furnace or air handler to provide optimum humidity around your house. Some models, like the Healthy Climate® Whole-Home Power Humidifier, use an incorporated fan to circulate humidity during the time your heating equipment isn’t on.
