Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the toughest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, AZ Air Conditioning and Heating 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 trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not occur if you’re not frequently replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s productivity.
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 most UV intensity obtainable that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. Additionally, germicidal lights have been found to reduce 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 large amounts of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering these things out of your air. Through 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
