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 lurking close next after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a bigger surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the tiniest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be problematic. To avoid mold collection or respiratory problems, Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity products that are the perfect key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be changed every few months, contingent on pets, the external environment in Upland or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t replaced often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria spread quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a strong static charge as air passes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as frequently. 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 reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
