Regularly, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra vital as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the hardest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. has several ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t be the case if you’re not frequently replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s efficiency.
UV Germicidal Lights
Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity available that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to reduce the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they succeed to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t actively running.
Majority of households generate large amounts of dust and dirt every 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 inspected will remove dirt, debris and other pollutants, and unclog your system. You’ll find that that cleaning your air ducts will have the enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
