Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are lurking close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning has some tools that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To gain a greater 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 smallest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold collection or respiratory problems, Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Thinner filters should be replaced every couple of months, contingent on pets, the outside 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 cause poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy problems for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, withholding them from entering the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters generate a strong static charge as air goes 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 need cleaning just as regularly.

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 microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
