Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the hardest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Comfort Zone, LLC has several ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t occur if you’re not regularly changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, 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 end pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity produced that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. 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 actively running.
Most households produce a lot 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 serviced will remove dirt, debris and other pollutants, and unclog your system. You’ll find that that cleaning your air ducts will have the pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
