Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly important as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the hardest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Stieferman Heating Company Inc has several ways you can keep your indoor air as clean as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t happen 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 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 most UV intensity available that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. Additionally, germicidal lights have been found to minimize 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 actively running.
Many households breed large amounts of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering these 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 better.
