Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are following close next after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc has some tips that can keep you comfortable this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To obtain a bigger surface area and lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some types 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 remove the littlest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having excessive humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold collection or respiratory issues, Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc offers whole-home humidity products that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Smaller filters should be changed every couple of months, depending on pets, the outside environment in Circleville or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t replaced often, it works tougher than it needs to and can cause poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria spread quite easily in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy issues for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, keeping them from moving through the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters generate a durable static charge as air passes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as frequently.

Whole home solution

The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
