Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma attacks. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes more vital as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the worst time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning has a few 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 capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not occur if you’re not regularly changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, 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 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 destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to decrease 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.
Most households breed a great deal of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering bad things out of your air. Over time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them serviced 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.
