How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 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 avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Ken Parker Service Inc has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a greater surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds of filters that are four to five inches wide which are frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove 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 difficult. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Ken Parker Service Inc offers whole-home humidity products that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be replaced every couple of months, contingent on pets, the outside environment in Greenville 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. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy problems 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 produce a strong static charge as air travels through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable 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 solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
