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 lurking close next after them. What do you do when you keep away from 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 improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a greater surface area and reduced 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 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 not enough humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold accumulation 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 few months, based on pets, the outside environment in Huntsville or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works tougher than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in contemporary, 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 durable static charge as air goes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as frequently. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
