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 trailing close after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc has some tools that can keep you cozy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a greater 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 pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be changed every few months, depending on pets, the external environment in Saint Petersburg or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t replaced often, it works tougher than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite effortlessly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, repressing them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a resilient static charge as air passes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with expendable 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 answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
