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 outdoor pollen but find yourself fighting with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Lakeside Heating & Air has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To gain a bigger 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 pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the tiniest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Having a lot of humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold collection or respiratory problems, Lakeside Heating & Air offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues.
One-inch air filters
Thinner filters should be changed every few months, based on pets, the external environment in Chelan and Wenatchee or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t replaced often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality.
Mold and bacteria spread quite effortlessly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores in the coils of your system, withholding them from coming into the air in your home.
Electrostatic air filters
These filters produce a strong static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as often.
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 reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
