Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are following close next after them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Freed Heating & Air Conditioning has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To receive a bigger surface area and lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to remove 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 tricky. To steer clear of mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Freed Heating & Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal solution to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Little filters should be replaced every so often, contingent on pets, the outside environment in Moline or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria spread quite effortlessly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, repressing them from coming into the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters produce a resilient static charge as air passes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with expendable 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 system 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.
