Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we close up 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, Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc has several 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 will not occur if you’re not regularly exchanging 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 end pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity produced 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 increase. Additionally, germicidal lights have been found to reduce the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they work to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t consecutively running.
Most households breed large amounts of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering these things out of your air. Throughout 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.
