Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the toughest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning has some ways you can keep your indoor air as clean as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter guards 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 exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s effectiveness.
UV Germicidal Lights
Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity produced that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to decrease 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 consecutively running.
Many households breed large amounts of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering it out of your air. Over 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.
