Now that spring is here, we will experience a plethora of pollen, rain, and other Heating Company Douglasvilleconstituent aspects of the season that will unfortunately lower the quality of air in our homes. Here are some tips to keep the air in your home clean so you can stay healthy and comfortable: Air Filtration When it comes to cleaning the air inside the home, many assume that the most common air filters, 1” filters which are usually made of cheap fiberglass threads, are designed for cleaning. In actuality, the only function they are designed for is to protect your equipment from large particles –they do very little for actually cleaning your air. Installing 5” two-stage in-line filters is a good, cheap alternative to having much cleaner air than relying on those 1” filters. High efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters are hospital grade with a 99.97% efficiency against 0.3 micron particles are our recommended filters for cleaning the air inside your home. They also are very effective at protecting your equipment as well. Humidity Control The humidity levels can have a major effect on the air quality in your home. During warmer weather when it can get extremely humid (especially in Georgia), dehumidifiers can greatly help improve your air. They help take care of pollutants such as pollen and make it very difficult for mold to grow inside your home. Dehumidifiers also help your home feel cooler, so you do not have to spend more energy in regulating the temperature to suit your comfort needs. During the cold seasons, utilizing humidifiers can help prevent dry skin, rough throats and bloody noses. Other Ultraviolet germicidal lights (UVC) are effective at killing germs and bacteria traveling in your ventilation systems. They are also useful at controlling odors, such as smoke and pet odors, that may be present in your home. Regularly cleaning your home also helps improve your air quality. Vacuuming rugs and carpet and sweeping floors that experience high amounts of foot traffic will greatly reduce dirt and debris and help prevent pollutants and allergens from building up in your home.
