Frequently, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma attacks. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the worst time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Clean Air HVAC has some 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 catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t happen 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 effectiveness.
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 highest UV intensity obtainable that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to minimize 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 actively running.
Many households generate a lot of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering bad things out of your air. Through 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 comfortably.
