How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, 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, Woody's Sudden Service Inc has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a bigger surface area and lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the tiniest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold accumulation or respiratory problems, Woody's Sudden Service Inc offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the ideal answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be swapped out every couple of months, based on pets, the external environment in Manassas Park or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works tougher than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores within the coils of your system, repressing them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a strong static charge as air travels through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need cleaning just as regularly. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants. Woody's Sudden Service Inc is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the finest that it can be.
