How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are following close next after them. What do you do when you avoid the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with interior allergens at the same time? Well, All Seasons Heating & A/C Co has some tips that can keep you cozy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a bigger surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the littlest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold build-up or respiratory trouble, All Seasons Heating & A/C Co offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be changed every couple of months, contingent on pets, the external environment in Bloomington or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works harder 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 blend with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy difficulties for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a strong static charge as air passes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with expendable 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 system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
