Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are lurking close next after them. What do you do when you avoid the open-air pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Tri County Climate Control LLC has some tips that can keep you cozy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To receive a bigger surface area and smaller 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 allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the tiniest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having too much humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold build-up or respiratory trouble, Tri County Climate Control LLC offers whole-home humidity products that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Thinner filters should be changed every couple of months, depending on pets, the outside environment in Bend or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t replaced often, it works more than it needs to and can produce poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores in the coils of your system, withholding them from moving through the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters generate a resilient static charge as air goes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with replaceable 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 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.
