Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are following close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the outdoor pollen but find yourself fighting with interior allergens at the same time? Well, J & J Air Conditioning has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To obtain a bigger 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 allow for higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the littlest 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 tricky. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory trouble, J & J Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal solution to any indoor air quality issues.
One-inch air filters
Thinner filters should be changed every few months, contingent on pets, the outside environment in Eastland or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t swapped out often, it works tougher than it needs to and can create poor air quality.
Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many people in 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 generate a durable static charge as air passes through them, accumulating 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 regularly.
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 resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
