Frequently, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the toughest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Lycoming Heating Company has some ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t occur if you’re not consistently 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 terminate pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity produced that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. Moreover, 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 consecutively running.
Most households breed a great deal of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering these things out of your air. Throughout 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.
