How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, that means that allergies are lurking close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Air Concepts of Middle Georgia has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a bigger 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 pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the smallest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be tricky. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, Air Concepts of Middle Georgia offers whole-home humidity products that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be replaced every so often, based on pets, the outside environment in Middle Georgia or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite effortlessly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy difficulties for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy 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 create a durable static charge as air goes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as regularly. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants. Air Concepts of Middle Georgia is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
