How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are trailing close next after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling has some tools that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a greater surface area and lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds of filters that are four to five inches wide which are gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the tiniest 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 difficult. To escape mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling offers whole-home humidity products that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be changed every couple of months, depending on pets, the outside environment in Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores in the coils of your system, repressing them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a resilient static charge as air travels 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 demand cleaning just as often. 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 microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants. Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling is here to guarantee that your spring indoor air quality is the best that it can be.
