Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring imminent, that means that allergies are lurking close after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Winters Heating and Cooling has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To gain 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 better 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 tricky. To steer clear of mold collection or respiratory problems, Winters Heating and Cooling offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Thinner filters should be replaced every so often, based on pets, the external environment in Franklin or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, repressing them from moving through the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters produce a durable static charge as air goes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as frequently.

Whole home solution

The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
