Frequently, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the toughest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Bell Air Conditioning Inc. has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter guards you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t occur if you’re not regularly changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are retaining your system’s efficiency.
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 highest UV intensity produced that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. Additionally, 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 each 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 cleaned 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 easier.
