Frequently, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the toughest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, ACE Solutions 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 won’t be the case if you’re not regularly exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s effectiveness.
UV Germicidal Lights
Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity produced that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. 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 succeed to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t consecutively running.
Many households breed a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is responsible 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 pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
