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 imminent, that means that allergies are lurking close behind them. What do you do when you avoid the open-air pollen but find yourself struggling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a large surface area and smaller 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 admit higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the tiniest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be problematic. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory problems, Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be replaced every few months, based on pets, the external environment in Denver or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works harder than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria spread quite effortlessly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, repressing them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a durable static charge as air goes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with expendable 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 top efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
