How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, that means that allergies are trailing close next after them. What do you do when you avoid the outside pollen but find yourself struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Arrings A/C & Heating has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a large 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 better MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the littlest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be problematic. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory problems, Arrings A/C & Heating offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be changed every so often, based on pets, the outdoor environment in Humble or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works tougher than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine 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 entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a resilient static charge as air travels through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need cleaning just as regularly. 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 microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants. Arrings A/C & Heating is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
