Regularly, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital 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, The Frazier Company has some ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not occur if you’re not regularly changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s effectiveness.
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 most UV intensity obtainable that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Additionally, 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 consecutively running.
Many households generate large amounts of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is responsible 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 easier.
