Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are trailing close next after them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Scott Temperature has some tips that can keep you cozy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To gain a bigger surface area and lower 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 admit higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the tiniest 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 steer clear of mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Scott Temperature offers whole-home humidity products that are the ideal answer to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Little filters should be changed every couple of months, depending on pets, the outdoor environment in Lawrence or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t replaced often, it works harder than it needs to and can cause poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria grow quite effortlessly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within 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 travels through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with replaceable 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 system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
