How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, 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 struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Cool Air Solutions has some tricks that can keep you cozy this spring season by enhancing 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 pleated 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 diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be problematic. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Cool Air Solutions offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be swapped out every couple of months, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in Murrieta or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t replaced often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in modern, 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, germs and spores within the coils of your system, withholding them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a durable static charge as air travels through them, collecting 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 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, amidst other indoor pollutants. Cool Air Solutions is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the finest that it can be.
