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 open-air pollen but find yourself struggling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Titan Heating & Air Conditioning has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To obtain a bigger surface area and reduced 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 allow for higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the tiniest particles of dirt while even offsetting odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having a lot of humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be difficult. To escape mold build-up or respiratory problems, Titan Heating & Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity products that are the best solution to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Smaller filters should be changed every so often, depending on pets, the outside environment in Central Point or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t swapped out often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria grow quite rapidly in modern, energy efficient homes. When these allergens combine with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy problems for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores in the coils of your system, repressing them from moving through the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters create a durable static charge as air goes through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be allowed through with disposable 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 answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a top efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, among other indoor pollutants.
