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 trailing close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, McFadden Heating & Cooling has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a large 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 admit higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of 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 problematic. To avoid mold build-up or respiratory problems, McFadden Heating & Cooling offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be changed every few months, based on pets, the outdoor environment in Dresden or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite effortlessly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, repressing them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a durable static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as regularly. 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 combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants. McFadden Heating & Cooling is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
