How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are following close after them. What do you do when you keep away from the open-air pollen but find yourself struggling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, White Mechanical, Inc. has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a bigger surface area and lower 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 allow for higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory issues, White Mechanical, Inc. offers whole-home humidity systems that are the perfect key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be changed every few months, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in Foothill Ranch or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria spread quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores within the coils of your system, repressing them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a resilient static charge as air travels 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 require cleaning just as often. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
