Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring imminent, that means that allergies are following close 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, PWA Heating & Cooling Inc has some tips that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To obtain a bigger surface area and reduced resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some types 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 eliminate the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having excessive humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, PWA Heating & Cooling Inc offers whole-home humidity products that are the perfect solution to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Thinner filters should be replaced every few months, based on pets, the external environment in Plainfield or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria spread quite rapidly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores in the coils of your system, repressing them from moving through the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters generate a strong static charge as air goes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as often.

Whole home solution

The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
