Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the hardest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Street Heating and Cooling has several 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 trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t occur if you’re not regularly changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s productivity.
UV Germicidal Lights
Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity obtainable that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is destroyed, 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 work to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t actively running.
Many households produce large amounts of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering these things out of your air. Through 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 easier.
