How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, that means that allergies are following close behind them. What do you do when you keep away from the open-air pollen but find yourself struggling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Stieferman Heating Company Inc has some tips that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a greater surface area and lower 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 upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the smallest 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 difficult. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory problems, Stieferman Heating Company Inc offers whole-home humidity systems that are the perfect 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 replaced often, it works tougher than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix 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, germs 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 goes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed 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 solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
