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 imminent, that means that allergies are trailing close next after them. What do you do when you avoid the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Symbiont Service Corp has some tools that can keep you cozy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a bigger 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 allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the tiniest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold build-up or respiratory issues, Symbiont Service Corp offers whole-home humidity systems that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Thinner filters should be changed every few months, based on pets, the external environment in Englewood or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy issues for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, withholding them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a strong static charge as air passes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand 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. Symbiont Service Corp is here to ensure that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
