Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are lurking close behind them. What do you do when you keep away from the outdoor pollen but find yourself fighting with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Farris Heating & Air has some tools 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 smaller resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some types 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 eliminate the tiniest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having a lot of humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be tricky. To escape mold collection or respiratory problems, Farris Heating & Air offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Smaller filters should be replaced every few months, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in Bartlesville or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can produce poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria develop quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy problems for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores within 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 allowed through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as often.

Whole home solution

The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to resist germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
