Frequently, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra crucial as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the toughest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter shields 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 replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, 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 terminate pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity produced that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once 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.
Majority of households generate a lot of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering bad things out of your air. Through 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
