How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are lurking close next after them. What do you do when you keep away from the open-air pollen but find yourself struggling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning has some tools that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a bigger surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the tiniest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity systems that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be replaced every couple of months, contingent on pets, the external environment in Ballwin or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works more than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria spread quite effortlessly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores inside the coils of your system, withholding them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a strong static charge as air travels 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 need cleaning just as often. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants. Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning is here to guarantee that your spring indoor air quality is the finest that it can be.
