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 lurking 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 reduced 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 build-up or respiratory trouble, Air Quality Solutions offers whole-home humidity systems that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be swapped out every few months, based on pets, the outside 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 combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy problems for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, withholding them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a resilient static charge as air goes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as regularly. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants. Air Quality Solutions is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
