How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are trailing close next after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Bell Air Conditioning Inc. has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a large surface area and reduced resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the littlest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be difficult. To avoid mold build-up or respiratory issues, Bell Air Conditioning Inc. offers whole-home humidity products that are the perfect answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be changed every few months, depending on pets, the outside environment in Belton or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores within the coils of your system, keeping them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a durable static charge as air goes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with replaceable 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 system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants. Bell Air Conditioning Inc. is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
