Frequently, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly important as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the worst time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, B & B Heating & Cooling has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as clean as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t be the case if you’re not frequently changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, 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 spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity produced that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to reduce 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 constantly running.
Majority of households produce a great deal of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering bad things out of your air. Through 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
