Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are trailing 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, Heartland Heating & Cooling has some tools that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality:
High efficiency air filters
To receive a large surface area and smaller 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 higher MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the tiniest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold collection or respiratory trouble, Heartland Heating & Cooling offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues.
One-inch air filters
Little filters should be changed every few months, based on pets, the outside environment in Des Moines 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 produce poor air quality.
Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy difficulties for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, germs 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 durable static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed 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 system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
