How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are lurking close behind them. What do you do when you keep away from the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, James Heating & A/C, Inc has some tips that can keep you cozy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a greater surface area and lower 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 allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the tiniest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be problematic. To avoid mold build-up or respiratory issues, James Heating & A/C, Inc offers whole-home humidity systems that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be replaced every so often, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in Lexington 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 develop quite rapidly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores within the coils of your system, repressing them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a durable static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need 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-level efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
