Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are following close next after them. What do you do when you avoid the open-air pollen but find yourself struggling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Airmen HVAC Service has some tools that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To gain a bigger 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 allow for higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the tiniest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having excessive humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Airmen HVAC Service offers whole-home humidity systems that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Smaller filters should be swapped out every couple of months, contingent on pets, the external environment in Montoursville or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is dirty 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 combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, withholding them from coming into the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters generate a resilient static charge as air travels through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as frequently.

Whole home solution

The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
