How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants Posted May 19, 2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are following close next after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outdoor pollen but find yourself fighting with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Ilten's Incorporated has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain 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 get rid of the smallest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold collection or respiratory problems, Ilten's Incorporated offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal answer to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be replaced every so often, depending on pets, the outside environment in Cedar Rapids or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria spread quite easily in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy problems for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores in the coils of your system, repressing them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters produce a strong static charge as air goes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with expendable 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-level efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. Ilten's Incorporated is here to guarantee that your spring indoor air quality is the best that it can be.
