How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, that means that allergies are lurking close after them. What do you do when you avoid the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Air Houston Mechanical LLC has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a greater surface area and reduced resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some types of filters that are four to five inches wide which are frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the littlest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be problematic. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory trouble, Air Houston Mechanical LLC offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be swapped out every couple of months, based on pets, the outside environment in Huffman or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works tougher than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy problems for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores in the coils of your system, withholding them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a durable static charge as air passes 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 need cleaning just as frequently. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
