Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
With spring imminent, that means that allergies are following close behind them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning has some tricks that can keep you cozy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To gain a bigger surface area and reduced resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the tiniest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Having too much humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be difficult. To steer clear of mold collection or respiratory issues, Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity systems that are the perfect solution to any indoor air quality issues.
One-inch air filters
Thinner filters should be swapped out every couple of months, depending on pets, the outside environment in Pflugerville or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works harder than it needs to and can create poor air quality.
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 issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy 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 create a resilient static charge as air goes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable 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 efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
