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 lurking close next after them. What do you do when you try to evade the open-air pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a greater surface area and reduced resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds of filters that are four to five inches wide which are pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the littlest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold collection or respiratory issues, Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. offers whole-home humidity systems that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be swapped out every so often, based on pets, the outside environment in South Beloit and Belvidere or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t replaced often, it works more than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a durable static charge as air goes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need cleaning just as regularly. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants. Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
