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 next after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, ACS Inc has some tools that can keep you cozy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a bigger surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models 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 remove the littlest 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 avoid mold collection or respiratory problems, ACS Inc offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be changed every so often, depending on pets, the outside environment in Metro Atlanta or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t replaced often, it works harder than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy problems for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, repressing them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a strong static charge as air passes 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 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 high-level efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. ACS Inc is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the best that it can be.
