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 indoor allergens at the same time? Well, B & G HVAC has some tips that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To receive a large surface area and smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds of filters that are four to five inches wide which are gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the smallest 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 problematic. To escape mold accumulation or respiratory issues, B & G HVAC offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Little filters should be changed every so often, depending on pets, the outside environment in Marshalltown or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can produce poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores in the coils of your system, keeping them from entering the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters produce a resilient static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as frequently.

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 resist germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
