Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are following close behind them. What do you do when you keep away from the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC has some tools that can keep you cozy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To gain a bigger 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 gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the littlest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having too much humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold build-up or respiratory trouble, Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC offers whole-home humidity products that are the ideal solution to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Smaller filters should be replaced every couple of months, based on pets, the outdoor environment in Hamilton or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t changed often, it works harder than it needs to and can produce poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria develop quite effortlessly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria 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 strong static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be let 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 system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
