Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are trailing close next after them. What do you do when you keep away from the open-air pollen but find yourself fighting with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To obtain a greater surface area and lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds of filters that are four to five inches wide which are gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the smallest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Having a lot of humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be difficult. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory trouble, Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating offers whole-home humidity products that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues.
One-inch air filters
Smaller filters should be changed every couple of months, contingent on pets, the external environment in Pella or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t changed often, it works tougher than it needs to and can create poor air quality.
Mold and bacteria spread quite rapidly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy issues for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores in the coils of your system, repressing them from moving through the air in your home.
Electrostatic air filters
These filters create a strong static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need 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 efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
