How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, that means that allergies are lurking close after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Superior Comfort Systems has some tools that can keep you cozy this spring season by enhancing 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 pleated 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 neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold collection or respiratory problems, Superior Comfort Systems offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be swapped out every so often, based on pets, the outside environment in Hendersonville or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t replaced often, it works more than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite effortlessly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores in the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a resilient static charge as air travels through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed 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 system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants. Superior Comfort Systems is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the finest that it can be.
