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 keep away from the outside pollen but find yourself struggling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Rim Country Mechanical, Inc. has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a greater surface area and lower 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 better MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the tiniest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold build-up or respiratory issues, Rim Country Mechanical, Inc. offers whole-home humidity systems that are the perfect key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be changed every couple of months, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in Show Low or the number of people residing 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 spread quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores inside the coils of your system, repressing them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a resilient static charge as air travels through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as frequently. 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 microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
