How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Air Quality Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are trailing close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the open-air pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Dynamic Comfort Solutions has some tools that can keep you cozy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a large 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 allow for higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be problematic. To steer clear of mold collection or respiratory issues, Dynamic Comfort Solutions offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be changed every few months, depending on pets, the external environment in Locust or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t replaced often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy problems for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, repressing them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a durable static charge as air travels through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be let 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 combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. Dynamic Comfort Solutions is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the finest that it can be.
