Regularly, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma attacks. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra important as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the hardest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Precision Mechanical 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 capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t be the case if you’re not regularly replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s productivity.
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 obtainable that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to minimize 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 consecutively running.
Majority of households breed large amounts of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering these things 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 pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
