How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are trailing close next after them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Summit Air Conditioning Inc has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a greater surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models 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 littlest particles of dirt while even neutralizing 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 problems, Summit Air Conditioning Inc 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 few months, based on pets, the outside environment in West Palm Beach or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t replaced often, it works tougher than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite effortlessly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores in the coils of your system, repressing them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a resilient static charge as air travels through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable 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 system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants. Summit Air Conditioning Inc is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
