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 try to evade the outside pollen but find yourself fighting with indoor allergens at the same time? Well, Garoken Energy Co. Inc. has some tricks that can keep you comfortable this spring season by bettering your indoor air quality:

High efficiency air filters

To receive a greater 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 frilled and folded like an accordion. These filters allocate higher efficiency and upper MERV ratings, which make them able to remove the littlest particles of dirt while even neutralizing odors.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers

Having excessive humidity and having too little humidity in your home can both be tricky. To steer clear of mold accumulation or respiratory trouble, Garoken Energy Co. Inc. offers whole-home humidity products that are the ideal solution to any indoor air quality issues.

One-inch air filters

Little filters should be replaced every so often, contingent on pets, the outside environment in Beaverton or the number of people living in your home. When your filter is grimy 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 contemporary, energy efficient homes. When these allergens blend with our breathing air, they can produce health and allergy problems for many members of your family. Ultraviolet lights extinguish the DNA in mold, fungi, bacteria and spores inside the coils of your system, keeping them from entering the air in your home.

Electrostatic air filters

These filters generate 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 need cleaning just as often.

Whole home solution

The PureAir Air Purification System is a whole-home cooling answer that uses photocatalytic oxidation and a high efficiency carbon filter to reduce germs and bacteria, airborne particles and chemical odors, as well as other indoor pollutants.
