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 just around the corner, that means that allergies are lurking close next after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Innovative Mechanical, LLC has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a greater surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds 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 get rid of the smallest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be difficult. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, Innovative Mechanical, LLC offers whole-home humidity products that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be replaced every so often, based on pets, the outdoor environment in Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t replaced often, it works more than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores in the coils of your system, keeping them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a durable static charge as air goes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with disposable 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 system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
