Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring imminent, that means that allergies are following close next after them. What do you do when you keep away from the outside pollen but find yourself struggling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing 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 models 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 remove the littlest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having too much humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold build-up or respiratory trouble, Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Smaller filters should be changed every few months, based on pets, the external environment in Hattiesburg or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can cause poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria spread quite rapidly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy problems for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores within the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

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

Whole home solution

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