Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are lurking close next after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, George Home Services has some tricks that can keep you comfy 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 littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having a lot of humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold build-up or respiratory problems, George Home Services offers whole-home humidity systems that are the perfect key to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Thinner filters should be swapped out every couple of months, contingent on pets, the outside environment in Williamsport or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works tougher than it needs to and can create poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria develop quite effortlessly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can produce 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, repressing them from coming into the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters create a durable 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 need cleaning just as frequently.

Whole home solution

The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
