Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes more important as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the hardest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Brogan Heating & AC Inc has some 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 catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t occur if you’re not frequently changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are retaining your system’s effectiveness.
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 highest 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. 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 continue to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t consecutively running.
Majority of households generate large amounts of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering bad things out of your air. Throughout 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
