Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the toughest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Mayeuxs AC & Heating has several 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 regularly changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, 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 destroy pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity available that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Additionally, germicidal lights have been found to reduce 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 actively running.
Many households produce large amounts of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering it out of your air. Over time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them cleaned will remove dirt, debris and other pollutants, and unclog your system. You’ll find that that cleaning your air ducts will have the enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
