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 try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with interior allergens at the same time? Well, ACS Heating and Air Conditioning has some tricks that can keep you cozy 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 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 problematic. To steer clear of mold collection or respiratory issues, ACS Heating and Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be replaced every so often, depending on pets, the outdoor environment in Tucker or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop 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 extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores inside the coils of your system, repressing them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a durable 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 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 resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
