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 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, Cool Air Solutions has some tools that can keep you cozy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a large surface area and smaller 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 allow for higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the smallest particles of dirt while even neutralizing 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 build-up or respiratory issues, Cool Air Solutions offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be swapped out every couple of months, depending on pets, the outside environment in Murrieta or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is grimy 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 contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy problems for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, withholding them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a strong static charge as air travels through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as often. 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 microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
