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 keep away from the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Rescue Heating & Air has some tricks 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 frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the smallest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To avoid mold build-up or respiratory issues, Rescue Heating & Air offers whole-home humidity products that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be swapped out every so often, based on pets, the outside environment in Alice or the number of people residing 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. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop 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 kill the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, withholding them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a durable static charge as air travels 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 require 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 efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
