Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring fast approaching, that means that allergies are trailing close behind them. What do you do when you avoid the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with inside allergens at the same time? Well, Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by improving your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To receive a large 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 gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the tiniest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having excessive humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be difficult. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory problems, Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. offers whole-home humidity products that are the ideal answer to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Smaller filters should be changed every few months, based on pets, the outdoor environment in the Rio Grande Valley or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is grimy and isn’t replaced often, it works more than it needs to and can cause poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria develop quite rapidly in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many folks in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores inside the coils of your system, repressing 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 allowed through with expendable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they demand cleaning just as frequently.

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 combat germs and microbes, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
