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 trailing close next after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Custom Air Systems Inc has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a large surface area and reduced resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher 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 problematic. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory issues, Custom Air Systems Inc offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be replaced every so often, based on pets, the outside environment in Indian River County or the number of people living 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 develop quite rapidly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy problems for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, repressing them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a durable static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with expendable 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 solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
