How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, that means that allergies are trailing close after them. What do you do when you avoid the open-air pollen but find yourself struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Point Heating & Cooling has some tools 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 types 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 offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be difficult. To steer clear of mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Point Heating & Cooling offers whole-home humidity products that are the perfect answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be changed every few months, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in Plover or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite effortlessly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy problems for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores within the coils of your system, repressing them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a durable static charge as air passes 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 need cleaning just as often. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants. Point Heating & Cooling is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the best that it can be.
