Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
With spring fast approaching, 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 indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To receive a bigger surface area and lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds of filters that are four to five inches wide which are pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Having a lot of humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be difficult. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling offers whole-home humidity products that are the perfect solution to any indoor air quality issues.
One-inch air filters
Little filters should be replaced every couple of months, based on pets, the outdoor environment in Des Moines or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works harder than it needs to and can create poor air quality.
Mold and bacteria develop quite easily in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy difficulties for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, withholding them from moving through the air in your home.
Electrostatic air filters
These filters create a resilient static charge as air travels through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as frequently.
Whole home solution
The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
