Improve Your Indoor Air Quality This Winter and Beyond
Another seasonal change is happening and, for some families in St. Louis, we know that means sniffles, dry eyes, and sneezes are coming right along with it. Indoor air quality is even more important as the seasons change. Besides, we’re all spending more time inside in St. Louis during the winter months.
If you’re looking for more ways to keep the air in your home clean, then you’ve come to the right place. Our years of experience make us the perfect guides to maximize your indoor air quality and help your family breathe easier. So, before hopping into consultations and additional solutions, let’s make sure you are taking the proper steps inside of your home for indoor air quality. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Keep all of your surfaces clean, especially in the kitchen and bathroom where germs and bacteria thrive
- Make sure you are changing your air filter every one to two months. Old filters make your furnace work harder and accumulate unwanted particles that can mix into the air entering your home
- Get your air ducts professionally cleaned, especially if you have had recent construction on your home
- Clean your vents and return grilles regularly
On top of home remedies, there are plenty of additional steps to take toward better indoor air quality. One of the most popular HVAC system upgrades that improves air quality is the use of a HEPA filtration system.
What is a HEPA Filtration System?
While it may sound like a complex and expensive piece of equipment, HEPA filtration is another way to describe an advanced air filter. It may just solve some of your indoor air quality struggles.
HEPA is an acronym for High Efficiency Particulate Air. HEPA filters are mechanical filters that deter over 99 percent of unwanted airborne particles. A HEPA filter pushes air through mesh to trap unwanted particles before they’re able to make it into the air in your living space.
Debris like pollen, pet dander, dust mites, odor-causing particles, viruses, and bacteria are all blocked by HEPA filters. Tired of pesky dust floating around in your home? Want to protect your family from invisible pollen, bacteria, and airborne viruses? A HEPA filter is probably the answer to your indoor air quality concerns. They have also become increasingly popular in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you or anyone in your family suffers from seasonal allergies, asthma, immunodeficiency, or other respiratory illnesses, your experts at Meyer Heating and Air highly recommend replacing your ordinary, subpar air filter with a HEPA filter.
You’ve Optimized Your HVAC System, But How Else Can You Maximize Your Indoor Air Quality?
If you’ve tried new filters and other optimization methods to achieve perfect indoor air quality and still feel like something is missing, you’re not alone. Many families find that their air filters can only work so hard, especially in the winter. Even residential HEPA filtration systems don’t always boost your system enough for 100 percent, perfectly clean indoor air quality. You might need to call in the big guns at Sanuvox and their UV light solutions.
Sanuvox air purification systems kill 99.99999 percent of the germs, harmful particles, and other debris that cause sickness, respiratory issues, and other healthcare concerns. The air purification system uses a UV lamp and reflector chamber to destroy all unwelcome air intruders and keep your family’s air clean and breathable.
What’s great about Sanuvox air purification systems is that they can be directly installed using the existing ductwork of your current HVAC system, or as standalone systems. With no hassle to maintain, cleaner air has never been easier to obtain!
