Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are following close after them. What do you do when you avoid the open-air pollen but find yourself fighting with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To gain a greater surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some types of filters that are four to five inches wide which are pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Having excessive humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be difficult. To avoid mold collection or respiratory problems, Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect answer to any indoor air quality issues.
One-inch air filters
Smaller filters should be swapped out every couple of months, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in York or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t replaced often, it works tougher than it needs to and can cause poor air quality.
Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy issues for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores in the coils of your system, keeping them from moving through the air in your home.
Electrostatic air filters
These filters produce a strong static charge as air travels 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 efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
