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 lurking close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself struggling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, 1st Choice Service Group Inc has some tips that can keep you cozy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To gain a greater 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 frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the smallest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold build-up or respiratory problems, 1st Choice Service Group Inc offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be swapped out every few months, contingent on pets, the outside environment in Asheville or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite easily 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 extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores in the coils of your system, repressing them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a resilient static charge as air passes through them, accumulating 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 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 combat germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants. 1st Choice Service Group Inc is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the best that it can be.
