How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants

Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are trailing close after them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Rescue Heating & Air has some tools 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 lower 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 allow for 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 insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To steer clear of mold accumulation or respiratory problems, Rescue Heating & Air offers whole-home humidity products that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Thinner filters should be swapped out every so often, based on pets, the outdoor environment in Alice 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 produce poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria grow quite easily 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, germs and spores within the coils of your system, withholding them from entering the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters produce a strong static charge as air travels through them, collecting 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 combat germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
