Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital as we shut 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, Heartland Heating & Cooling 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 can’t happen if you’re not regularly replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s efficiency.
UV Germicidal Lights
Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity obtainable that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to decrease 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 actively running.
