Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes more important as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the toughest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Age Heating & Cooling has several 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 trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t be the case if you’re not regularly replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s productivity.
UV Germicidal Lights
Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity available that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is defeated, 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 produce a great deal of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering bad things out of your air.
