Regularly, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma attacks. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra vital as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the worst time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Lanz Furnace and Fireplace has some ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy 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 consistently 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 end pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity produced that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to reduce the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they succeed to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t actively running.
Many households breed a lot of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering bad things out of your air. Throughout time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them inspected will remove dirt, debris and other pollutants, and unclog your system. You’ll find that that cleaning your air ducts will have the pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
