Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are trailing close after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outside pollen but find yourself struggling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Patterson & Stirling Inc has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To gain a greater 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 tiniest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Having too much humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be difficult. To steer clear of mold accumulation or respiratory problems, Patterson & Stirling Inc offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect answer to any indoor air quality issues.
One-inch air filters
Little filters should be changed every few months, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in Erie or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t changed often, it works harder than it needs to and can create poor air quality.
Mold and bacteria grow quite effortlessly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores in the coils of your system, withholding them from entering 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 let through with disposable 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 solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
