Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are lurking close next after them. What do you do when you avoid the outside pollen but find yourself struggling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Bon Air Service Company has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To gain a greater 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 gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters admit higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the smallest particles of dirt while even diffusing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having too much humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be difficult. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory issues, Bon Air Service Company offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best 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 Grand Prairie or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t swapped out often, it works harder than it needs to and can create poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria develop quite easily in contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy issues for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, keeping them from entering the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters create a strong static charge as air goes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they need cleaning just as frequently.

Whole home solution

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