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 trailing 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, E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service has some tools that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing 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 models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the tiniest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold build-up or respiratory issues, E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be replaced every few months, depending on pets, the outdoor environment in East Bernard or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy difficulties for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a strong static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand 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, among other indoor pollutants.
