Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring imminent, that means that allergies are lurking close after them. What do you do when you keep away from the open-air pollen but find yourself fighting with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Stieferman Heating Company Inc has some tips that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To gain a greater 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 pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the smallest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having excessive humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be difficult. To steer clear of mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Stieferman Heating Company Inc offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Little filters should be changed every so often, contingent on pets, the external environment in Jefferson City or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t changed often, it works tougher than it needs to and can cause poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy problems for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores inside the coils of your system, withholding them from entering the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters create a durable static charge as air passes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need 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 efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
