Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the toughest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Anderson Heating & A/C has several ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t occur if you’re not frequently changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are retaining your system’s effectiveness.
UV Germicidal Lights
Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity available that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to minimize 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 consecutively running.
Majority of households breed a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering bad things out of your air. Throughout time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them cleaned 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.
