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 behind them. What do you do when you avoid the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, E.B. Air, LLC has some tricks 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 gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the smallest 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, LLC offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be changed every few months, contingent 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 harder than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside 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, collecting 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 regularly. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. E.B. Air, LLC is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the finest that it can be.
