How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are following close next after them. What do you do when you avoid the open-air pollen but find yourself grappling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a greater 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 gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the smallest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold collection or respiratory issues, Rapids Sheet Metal Works 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 replaced every few months, based on pets, the outside environment in Wisconsin Rapids or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is unclean 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 blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores in the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a resilient static charge as air travels 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 demand 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 combat germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants. Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc is here to guarantee that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
