How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are lurking close next after them. What do you do when you avoid the open-air pollen but find yourself fighting with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Stan's Heating, Inc has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a bigger surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds of filters that are four to five inches wide which are frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the smallest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold collection or respiratory trouble, Stan's Heating, Inc offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be replaced every few months, contingent on pets, the outside environment in Ontario or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t changed often, it works tougher 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 mix with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy difficulties for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores within the coils of your system, withholding them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a resilient static charge as air travels through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as frequently. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
