How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, that means that allergies are following close next after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc has some tricks that can keep you cozy this spring season by enhancing 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 allow for higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the littlest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be tricky. To avoid mold build-up or respiratory trouble, Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc offers whole-home humidity products that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be changed every so often, depending on pets, the external environment in Phoenix or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow 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 members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, keeping them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a resilient 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 require cleaning just as regularly. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
