COVID-19: How Your HVAC Can Help Your Family Stay Healthy

With everyone focused on COVID-19, and making sure we practice social distancing and healthy everyday habits, it’s important to note that the HVAC system in your home can help you and your family stay healthy.

One aspect of your HVAC system that many may not think of, is the health of your indoor air. Your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) involves systems that can attach to your HVAC system, and help to purify your air, kill contaminates, and reduce allergens.

Professor and indoor air quality expert, Jeffrey Siegel, says filtration systems can be a part of an overall risk mitigation approach.

The air we breathe in each day in our homes is re-circulated throughout your home. So that means if one person gets sick, the air they breathe out is circulated to each person in your home. IAQ products can help clean that air and reduce viruses from one family member to another.

Here are some of the top Indoor Air Quality items we recommend to help keep your indoor air clean.

Air Purification

Whole-home air purification systems are the most common IAQ product, especially for homes with people who are sensitive to allergens. Though an air purification system installed in your home can protect you and your loved ones from more than just allergens. Air purification systems can eliminate the threat of airborne viruses and bacteria that cause upper respiratory infections.

The air purification system we carry traps and destroys bacteria and germs like airborne mold, fungi and viruses.

With the most recent instance of the coronavirus, now is the time to make sure your home is free of harmful particles and bacteria that could carry this deadly virus.


UV Germicidal Lights

UV Germicidal Lights destroy contaminants like mold, mildew and bacteria. They work by using maximum-intensity ultraviolet light, and damage the cell structure of microorganisms, preventing them from growing and spreading throughout your home.

The biggest benefit to UV lights is that they destroys germs in your home. The other benefit is actually for your HVAC system- germicidal lights kill germs, mold and fungi that may live in your ductwork and inside your HVAC equipment, which helps to keep your HVAC system clean and running at peak efficiency. Good for your health and the health of your home.

We currently have a limited time offer for UV Germicidal Lights, contact us to schedule an appointment.

Filtration

All furnaces have a filter, but it could be that your current filter is a thin, standard filter. Although these filters clean out some of the dirt and debris from your harming your furnace, they aren’t as good as an upgraded media filter.

One example of an upgraded filter is our carbon clean filter which combines a MERV 16 filter with activated, carbon-coated fibers to remove allergy-aggravating particles from your home’s air.

This advances filter provides filtration throughout your home while reducing ozone which is a lung irritant.
