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 following close next after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Comfort Zone Inc has some tools that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a large surface area and reduced resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the smallest 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 problems, Comfort Zone Inc offers whole-home humidity systems that are the perfect answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be replaced every so often, based on pets, the outdoor environment in Cape Coral or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy difficulties for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores within the coils of your system, keeping them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a strong 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 require cleaning just as regularly. 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, among other indoor pollutants. Comfort Zone Inc is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the best that it can be.
