Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are lurking close behind them. What do you do when you keep away from the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, GV Heating & Air has some tips that can keep you cozy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To receive a greater surface area and reduced 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 remove the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Having too much humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be tricky. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory problems, GV Heating & Air offers whole-home humidity systems that are the perfect key to any indoor air quality issues.
One-inch air filters
Thinner filters should be replaced every couple of months, contingent on pets, the outside environment in Crystal and Twin Cities or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t replaced often, it works tougher than it needs to and can create poor air quality.
Mold and bacteria develop quite effortlessly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, withholding them from entering the air in your home.
Electrostatic air filters
These filters create a resilient static charge as air goes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need 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-level efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
