Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring just around the corner, that means that allergies are lurking close behind them. What do you do when you try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself grappling with interior allergens at the same time? Well, Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning has some tricks that can keep you cozy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To gain a large 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 pleated and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to eliminate the littlest 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 tricky. To avoid mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the ideal key to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Thinner filters should be replaced every couple of months, depending on pets, the outdoor environment in Odessa or the number of people residing in your home. When your filter is dirty and isn’t changed 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 blend with our breathing air, they can cause health and allergy difficulties for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights destroy the DNA in mold, fungi, microbes and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from coming into the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters create a durable static charge as air travels through them, collecting tiny particles that would otherwise be let through with expendable 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 high efficiency carbon filter to combat germs and microorganisms, airborne particles and chemical odors, amidst other indoor pollutants.
