Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly crucial as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the toughest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as clean 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 won’t be the case if you’re not regularly exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, 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 destroy pollutants when they move 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. Additionally, 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.
Majority of households produce large amounts of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering it out of your air. Throughout time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them serviced 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.
