How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Air Quality 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 grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc has some tips that can keep you cozy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain 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 gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the smallest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold collection or respiratory problems, Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be changed every few months, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in Stuart and West Palm Beach areas or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite effortlessly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy problems for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a resilient static charge as air travels 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 need cleaning just as often. 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 reduce germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
