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 following close after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outdoor pollen but find yourself fighting with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning has some tools that can keep you cozy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a large surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some types of filters that are four to five inches wide which are gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the tiniest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold build-up or respiratory problems, Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be replaced every couple of months, depending on pets, the outdoor environment in Wyandotte or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t swapped out often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria spread quite rapidly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy difficulties for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, repressing them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a strong static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as regularly. 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 bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
