How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 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 avoid the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Davis Heating & Air Conditioning has some tools 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 lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for 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 escape mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, Davis Heating & Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be swapped out every couple of months, contingent on pets, the outside environment in Rocky Mount or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores in 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 passes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with replaceable 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 answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants. Davis Heating & Air Conditioning is here to guarantee that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
