How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are trailing close next after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outdoor pollen but find yourself fighting with inside allergens at the same time? Well, County Line Mechanical LLC has some tricks that can keep you cozy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a bigger surface area and smaller 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 get rid of the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold build-up or respiratory trouble, County Line Mechanical LLC offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be swapped out every so often, depending on pets, the external environment in Reinholds or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is dirty 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 effortlessly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores in the coils of your system, keeping them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a strong static charge as air goes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with disposable 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 top efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
