Frequently, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more vital as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the worst time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Air Service Co. has some ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter guards you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not occur if you’re not regularly replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are retaining your system’s efficiency.
UV Germicidal Lights
Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to destroy pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity produced that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to decrease the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they work to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t constantly running.
Most households breed a lot of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering bad things out of your air. Over time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them serviced will remove dirt, debris and other pollutants, and unclog your system. You’ll find that that cleaning your air ducts will have the pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
