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, Anderson Heating & A/C has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To gain a greater surface area and reduced 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 allocate higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the smallest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Having excessive humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, Anderson Heating & A/C offers whole-home humidity systems that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues.
One-inch air filters
Thinner filters should be replaced every so often, based on pets, the outside environment in Carson City 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 cause poor air quality.
Mold and bacteria develop quite easily in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores within the coils of your system, keeping them from entering the air in your home.
Electrostatic air filters
These filters produce a durable static charge as air passes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as frequently.
Whole home solution
The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
