Frequently, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly important as we shut 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, Tri County Climate Control LLC has several 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 trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not be the case if you’re not regularly exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s efficiency.
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 obtainable that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to reduce the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they succeed to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t constantly running.
Majority of households generate a great deal of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering it 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 enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe easier.
