How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are lurking close behind them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. has some tools that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a large surface area and lower 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 get rid of the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be difficult. To avoid mold collection or respiratory trouble, Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. offers whole-home humidity products that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be changed every few months, based on pets, the external environment in Anaheim or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores in the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a strong static charge as air goes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as frequently. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling solution 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. Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
