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 avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself fighting with interior allergens at the same time? Well, H&C Heating and Cooling has some tools that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To receive a large surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds of filters that are four to five inches wide which are gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the littlest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Having too much humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To steer clear of mold collection or respiratory trouble, H&C Heating and Cooling offers whole-home humidity systems that are the perfect 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 Laurel or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t changed often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality.
Mold and bacteria develop quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores within the coils of your system, keeping them from moving through the air in your home.
Electrostatic air filters
These filters generate a strong static charge as air goes through them, accumulating 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 often.
Whole home solution
The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
