Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring imminent, that means that allergies are lurking close next after them. What do you do when you keep away from the open-air pollen but find yourself fighting with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, House of Heating Incorporated has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To obtain a large surface area and reduced resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the smallest 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 problematic. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, House of Heating Incorporated offers whole-home humidity systems that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Little filters should be swapped out every so often, contingent on pets, the external environment in Marshfield or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t replaced often, it works tougher than it needs to and can produce poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria spread quite easily in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy problems for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from entering 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 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 high efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
