How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are trailing close after them. What do you do when you avoid the open-air pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Mr. Air Repair has some tips that can keep you comfortable 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 types 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 tiniest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, Mr. Air Repair offers whole-home humidity products that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be swapped out every few months, depending on pets, the outside environment in Shelby Township or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t swapped out often, it works tougher than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a resilient 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 answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. Mr. Air Repair is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the best that it can be.
