Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring imminent, that means that allergies are trailing close after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating has some tips that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To receive a bigger 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 allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the littlest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having too much humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold collection or respiratory trouble, Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Smaller filters should be replaced every couple of months, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in Laguna Niguel or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works more than it needs to and can cause poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria spread quite easily in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, withholding them from moving through 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 disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as often.

Whole home solution

The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
