Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring imminent, that means that allergies are trailing close after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Air Houston Mechanical LLC has some tools that can keep you cozy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To receive a bigger surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some types of filters that are four to five inches wide which are pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the smallest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having a lot of humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold collection or respiratory issues, Air Houston Mechanical LLC offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal solution to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Little filters should be replaced every so often, depending on pets, the outside environment in Huffman or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t changed often, it works harder than it needs to and can produce poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria grow quite effortlessly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores within the coils of your system, repressing them from moving through the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters produce a resilient static charge as air travels through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as regularly.

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 microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
