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 following close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Air Quality Solutions has some tools 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 lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds of filters that are four to five inches wide which are frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, Air Quality Solutions offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be swapped out every few months, based on pets, the outdoor environment in Grove City or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria spread quite easily in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy problems for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a resilient static charge as air passes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with replaceable 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 system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
