How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are trailing close after them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a greater surface area and lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds of filters that are four to five inches wide which are pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the littlest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be tricky. To steer clear of mold accumulation or respiratory problems, Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be replaced every couple of months, depending on pets, the outdoor environment in East Peoria or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t replaced often, it works harder than it needs to and can create 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 generate 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, keeping them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a durable static charge as air passes 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 often. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
