Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
With spring imminent, that means that allergies are lurking close next after them. What do you do when you try to evade the open-air pollen but find yourself grappling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Age Heating & Cooling has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To receive a large surface area and reduced 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 admit 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 too much humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold build-up or respiratory trouble, Age Heating & Cooling offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues.
One-inch air filters
Thinner filters should be swapped out every couple of months, based on pets, the outdoor environment in Sandpoint or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t changed often, it works tougher than it needs to and can produce poor air quality.
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 problems for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from entering the air in your home.
Electrostatic air filters
These filters create a durable static charge as air goes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with replaceable 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-level efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
