How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, that means that allergies are lurking close behind them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, The Frazier Company has some tools that can keep you cozy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a greater 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 remove the smallest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory issues, The Frazier Company offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the perfect answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be swapped out every couple of months, based on pets, the external environment in Omaha 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 create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a strong static charge as air travels through them, accumulating 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 often. Whole home solution The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
