Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring imminent, that means that allergies are trailing close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Dearing's Service & Solutions has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To obtain a greater surface area and lower 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 admit higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the smallest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having excessive humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be difficult. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory problems, Dearing's Service & Solutions offers whole-home humidity systems that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Thinner filters should be swapped out every so often, depending on pets, the outdoor environment in Huntingburg or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can create poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria grow quite effortlessly in modern, 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 extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters generate a durable static charge as air passes 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 require cleaning just as frequently.

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.
