Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With spring imminent, that means that allergies are trailing close next after them. What do you do when you avoid the open-air pollen but find yourself fighting with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Mayeuxs AC & Heating has some tools that can keep you comfy this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To receive a greater surface area and reduced resistance to air flow in your air conditioning filter, there are some types of filters that are four to five inches wide which are frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allow for higher efficiency and higher MERV ratings, which make them able to get rid of the smallest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having too much humidity and having not enough humidity in your home can both be problematic. To steer clear of mold build-up or respiratory issues, Mayeuxs AC & Heating offers whole-home humidity solutions that are the ideal answer to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Little filters should be changed every so often, depending on pets, the outdoor environment in Norco and St. Charles Parish or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is unclean and isn’t changed often, it works more than it needs to and can create poor air quality.

Germicidal Lights

Mold and bacteria spread quite easily in cutting-edge, energy efficient homes. When these allergens mix with our breathing air, they can generate health and allergy issues for many people in your family. Ultraviolet lights kill the DNA in mold, fungi, germs and spores in the coils of your system, keeping them from entering the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters produce a strong 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 often.

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, among other indoor pollutants.
