How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Air Quality Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, that means that allergies are trailing close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing 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 gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the tiniest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be tricky. To avoid mold collection or respiratory issues, Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be swapped out every couple of months, depending on pets, the outside environment in Vancouver or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works tougher than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a strong static charge as air travels through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need 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, among other indoor pollutants.
