Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are following close behind them. What do you do when you keep away from the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with inside allergens at the same time? Well, JTech Mechanical has some tools that can keep you comfy this spring season by improving 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 models of filters that are four to five inches wide which are gathered and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and better MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the tiniest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having too much humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be problematic. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory trouble, JTech Mechanical offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the best answer to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Thinner filters should be changed every few months, depending on pets, the outside environment in Magnolia or the number of people staying in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can cause poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria spread quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy difficulties for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores within the coils of your system, withholding them from moving through the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters create a strong static charge as air passes through them, gathering tiny particles that would otherwise be permitted through with disposable filters. Electrostatic filters are washable, but while they don’t need replacement, they require cleaning just as regularly.

Whole home solution

The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling system that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
