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 try to evade the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Air Solutions, Inc has some tips that can keep you comfortable this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a bigger 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 gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the tiniest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be problematic. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory problems, Air Solutions, Inc offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be changed every so often, based on pets, the outdoor environment in Groves or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works more than it needs to and can cause 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 issues 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 generate a strong static charge as air goes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with expendable 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 solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. Air Solutions, Inc is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the best that it can be.
