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 trailing close after them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating has some tips that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain 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 allow for higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the smallest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having a lot of humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be tricky. To avoid mold build-up or respiratory trouble, Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be swapped out every so often, depending on pets, the outside environment in St. Louis or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t replaced often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, withholding them from entering the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a resilient static charge as air passes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with expendable 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 high efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
