How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are lurking close after them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Alltemp Comfort Services LLC has some tips that can keep you cozy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a greater surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds of filters that are four to five inches wide which are pleated 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 offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Alltemp Comfort Services LLC offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be replaced every couple of months, contingent on pets, the external environment in Columbia or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy problems for many folks in 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 generate a resilient static charge as air goes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as frequently. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
