How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are trailing close after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Aireforce Heating & Air Inc has some tips that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a large surface area and lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the tiniest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To avoid mold build-up or respiratory trouble, Aireforce Heating & Air Inc offers whole-home humidity systems that are the perfect answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be changed every couple of months, depending on pets, the outside environment in Santee or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite effortlessly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a strong static charge as air passes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need cleaning just as often. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
