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 trailing close after them. What do you do when you avoid the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Twin Air LLC has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a bigger surface area and reduced 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 allow for higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory problems, Twin Air LLC offers whole-home humidity products that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be replaced every few months, contingent on pets, the external environment in Manassas or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores within the coils of your system, withholding them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a strong static charge as air goes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need cleaning just as regularly. 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 resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants. Twin Air LLC is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the finest that it can be.
