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 behind them. What do you do when you avoid the open-air pollen but find yourself struggling with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, McNatt Inc has some tools that can keep you cozy this spring season by improving your indoor air quality: High efficiency air filters To obtain a large surface area and lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some types 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 tiniest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers Having too much humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory problems, McNatt Inc offers whole-home humidity systems that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues. One-inch air filters Little filters should be swapped out every couple of months, contingent on pets, the outdoor environment in Corpus Christi or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t swapped out often, it works tougher than it needs to and can produce poor air quality. Germicidal Lights Mold and bacteria grow quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy difficulties for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores within the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home. Electrostatic air filters These filters generate a strong static charge as air travels through them, accumulating tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with expendable 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 solution that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high-level efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants. McNatt Inc is here to make sure that your spring indoor air quality is the best that it can be.
