How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants

Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are trailing close after them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc has some tips that can keep you cozy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To gain a greater surface area and reduced resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some types of filters that are four to five inches wide which are gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the smallest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having excessive humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold collection or respiratory trouble, Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc offers whole-home humidity products that are the ideal answer to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Thinner filters should be replaced every so often, contingent on pets, the external environment in Mobile or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t replaced 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 blend with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy problems for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, repressing them from moving through the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters generate a resilient static charge as air goes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as often.

Whole home solution

The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
