Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the hardest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Brandon Heating and Plumbing 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 trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t occur if you’re not consistently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, 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 circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity produced that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. What’s even better is that 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 responsible for filtering bad things out of your air. Throughout time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them inspected will remove dirt, debris and other pollutants, and unclog your system. You’ll find that that cleaning your air ducts will have the pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
