How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are trailing close after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by improving 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 gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the smallest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold collection or respiratory trouble, Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be changed every so often, based on pets, the outdoor environment in Kingsville or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a strong static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with disposable 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 high efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants. Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
