How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are following close next after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a greater 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 frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the smallest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC offers whole-home humidity systems that are the perfect solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be replaced every couple of months, contingent on pets, the external environment in Hamilton 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 rapidly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, withholding them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a strong static charge as air passes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as often. 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 resist germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
