How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, that means that allergies are following close behind them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Thornberry Bros Inc has some tools that can keep you comfortable this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a large surface area and lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some types of filters that are four to five inches wide which are pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of 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 problematic. To escape mold build-up or respiratory problems, Thornberry Bros Inc offers whole-home humidity products that are the ideal solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be changed every so often, depending on pets, the outdoor environment in Winchester or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t swapped out often, it works tougher than it needs to and can cause poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a strong static charge as air goes through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as regularly. 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 resist germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants. Thornberry Bros Inc is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the finest that it can be.
