Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly crucial as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the worst time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Durable Service has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not happen 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 efficiency.
UV Germicidal Lights
Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity produced that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is gone, 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 continue to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t constantly running.
Many households breed a great deal of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering these things out of your air. Through 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
