Regularly, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly important as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the worst time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as clean 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 can’t happen if you’re not regularly replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, 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 move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity obtainable that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to minimize the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they continue to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t constantly running.
Many households produce a lot of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering bad 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 easier.
