Regularly, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra important as we shut 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, Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning has a few 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 capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t be the case if you’re not frequently changing 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 end pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity available that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is gone, 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 generate a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering these things out of your air.
