Regularly, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma attacks. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the hardest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling 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 won’t be the case if you’re not regularly exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s efficiency.
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 greatest UV intensity produced that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to minimize 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 generate large amounts of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is responsible 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
