Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are following close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, KDM Service Corporation has some tools that can keep you cozy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To obtain a greater surface area and reduced 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 allocate higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the littlest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having excessive humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory problems, KDM Service Corporation offers whole-home humidity products that are the perfect answer to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

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

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy problems for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores inside the coils of your system, withholding them from moving through the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters create a strong static charge as air passes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with disposable 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 answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
