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 following close after them. What do you do when you keep away from 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 enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To receive a greater 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 frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the tiniest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To steer clear of mold accumulation or respiratory problems, The Frazier Company offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little 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 dirty and isn’t replaced often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy difficulties for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, withholding 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 let 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 microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. The Frazier Company is here to guarantee that your spring indoor air quality is the finest that it can be.
