Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the worst time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Lakeside Heating & Air has some ways you can keep your indoor air as clean 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 won’t occur if you’re not frequently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are retaining your system’s efficiency.
UV Germicidal Lights
Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity obtainable that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Moreover, 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 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 enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe easier.
