How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, that means that allergies are following close after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Effective Service Group, LLC. has some tips that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a large 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 admit 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 excessive humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold collection or respiratory trouble, Effective Service Group, LLC. offers whole-home humidity systems that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be swapped out every couple of months, based on pets, the external environment in East Hanover or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works more than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria spread 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 members of your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores in the coils of your system, repressing them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a strong static charge as air goes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need 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 combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
