Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the toughest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, B&D Air Conditioning has some ways you can keep your indoor air as clean 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 can’t be the case if you’re not regularly replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s effectiveness.
UV Germicidal Lights
Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to destroy pollutants when they spread 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. Since the DNA is gone, 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 constantly running.
Majority of households produce a lot of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering these things out of your air.
