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 keep away from the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Clean Air HVAC has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To gain a large surface area and reduced 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 allow for higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the tiniest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Having a lot of humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be problematic. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Clean Air HVAC offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the ideal solution 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 Pacheco or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can produce poor air quality.
Mold and bacteria spread quite effortlessly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within 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 passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as regularly.
Whole home solution
The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
