Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are trailing close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To receive a bigger 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 admit higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Having excessive humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold build-up or respiratory issues, Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity products that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues.
One-inch air filters
Little filters should be changed every so often, depending on pets, the outside environment in Bishop or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t swapped out often, it works more than it needs to and can produce poor air quality.
Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy problems for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from moving through the air in your home.
Electrostatic air filters
These filters generate 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 answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
