How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are following close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Service Plus Mechanical has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a large surface area and smaller 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 allocate higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the smallest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold build-up or respiratory issues, Service Plus Mechanical offers whole-home humidity products that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be swapped out every couple of months, contingent on pets, the outside environment in Aurora or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria spread quite effortlessly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties 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 goes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as regularly. 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 resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. Service Plus Mechanical is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the finest that it can be.
