Frequently, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the worst time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, KDM Service Corporation has some ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible.
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter guards you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not be the case if you’re not consistently changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, 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 move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity produced that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is destroyed, 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 continue to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t constantly running.
Most households produce a lot of dust and dirt every 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 enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
