How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Air Quality Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are following close after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Nisair Air Conditioning has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive 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 frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To avoid mold build-up or respiratory problems, Nisair Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be replaced every few months, depending on pets, the external environment in Fort Pierce or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria spread quite easily in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy problems for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores in 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 goes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with disposable 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 solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. Nisair Air Conditioning is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the best that it can be.
