How to Reduce the Impact of Air Quality Irritants 05/19/2016 Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With spring imminent, 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 interior allergens at the same time? Well, KDM Service Corporation has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a large 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 neutralizing odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having excessive humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be tricky. To avoid mold build-up or respiratory problems, KDM Service Corporation offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the ideal solution to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Smaller filters should be swapped out every couple of months, depending on pets, the outdoor environment in Tuscaloosa or the number of people living 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 grow quite rapidly in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy problems for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores in the coils of your system, withholding them from moving through the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters create a resilient static charge as air goes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with replaceable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need cleaning just as regularly. 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 combat germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. KDM Service Corporation is here to guarantee that your spring indoor air quality is the greatest that it can be.
