Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra important as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the worst time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Dearing's Service & Solutions has some ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh 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 occur if you’re not consistently changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, 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 terminate pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity available that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. Additionally, germicidal lights have been found to reduce 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.
Majority of households breed a great deal of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering it out of your air. Over 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 enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
