How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are lurking close after them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Gordon Air Conditioning has some tools that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering 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 types of filters that are four to five inches wide which are frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the tiniest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold accumulation or respiratory problems, Gordon Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity products that are the ideal answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be replaced every couple of months, based on pets, the outside environment in Crestview or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t replaced often, it works harder than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria spread quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores in the coils of your system, repressing them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a strong static charge as air goes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable 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 top efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants. Gordon Air Conditioning is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the finest that it can be.
