Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring imminent, that means that allergies are following close after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outside pollen but find yourself struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Precision Mechanical has some tools that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To receive 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 allow for higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the tiniest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having too much humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, Precision Mechanical offers whole-home humidity systems that are the best key to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Little filters should be replaced every few months, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in Rapid City or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t changed often, it works tougher than it needs to and can cause poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria grow quite effortlessly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores inside the coils of your system, repressing them from moving through the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters create a strong static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as often.

Whole home solution

The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
