Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are following close behind them. What do you do when you avoid the outdoor pollen but find yourself struggling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Lanz Furnace and Fireplace has some tricks that can keep you comfy this spring season by enhancing your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To obtain a bigger surface area and lower resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some kinds of filters that are four to five inches wide which are pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the littlest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having excessive humidity and having insufficient humidity in your home can both be problematic. To escape mold build-up or respiratory trouble, Lanz Furnace and Fireplace offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Smaller filters should be swapped out every so often, based on pets, the outside environment in Monroe or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is grimy 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 effortlessly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, repressing them from entering the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters produce a resilient static charge as air travels through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with expendable 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 high-level efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
