Regularly, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra important as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the hardest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Winters Heating and Cooling has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t occur if you’re not frequently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s effectiveness.
UV Germicidal Lights
Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to destroy pollutants when they spread 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 gone, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. Additionally, 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.
Majority of households breed a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering bad things out of your air.
