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 following close after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself struggling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning has some tools that can keep you comfortable this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive 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 get rid of the tiniest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold collection or respiratory issues, Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity systems that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be replaced every few months, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in Derby or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works tougher 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 mix with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores inside the coils of your system, withholding them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a durable static charge as air passes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as regularly. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
