How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are following close next after them. What do you do when you avoid the outside pollen but find yourself struggling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a greater surface area and lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some types of filters that are four to five inches wide which are frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and higher 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 not enough humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold build-up or respiratory trouble, All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc offers whole-home humidity products that are the ideal answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be replaced every couple of months, based on pets, the outdoor environment in Huntsville or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works tougher than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy problems for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, repressing them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a strong static charge as air goes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as regularly. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
