How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, that means that allergies are lurking close behind them. What do you do when you avoid the open-air pollen but find yourself struggling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Wallpe Heating & Cooling has some tips that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a large 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 gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the tiniest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be difficult. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory problems, Wallpe Heating & Cooling offers whole-home humidity products that are the ideal answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be changed every so often, based on pets, the external environment in Greensburg or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy issues for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores in the coils of your system, withholding them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a resilient static charge as air passes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be let 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 system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants. Wallpe Heating & Cooling is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
