For airborne viruses, there are different precautions you should take whether you are out in public or at your home. When you go out, practicing social distancing and covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze makes a big difference. At home you also want to have healthy air free of airborne viruses, and you have much more control over that in your own house.
Having healthier air in your home is possible with the right equipment, and that starts with your air filtration. Every spring, you know that dust, pollen and other allergens can affect you and your family. These days with the global coronavirus pandemic, healthier air and improving your indoor air quality means so much more.
Proper air filtration in your home doesn’t cover only the air already inside, but also the incoming ventilation. You should already replace your air filters regularly throughout the year, but the air filter you install can vary. To help capture not only the typical springtime allergens but also airborne viruses, you will need an air filter with the highest rate of effectiveness.
Humidity levels will change between the seasons and controlling the humidity in your home will both make you feel more comfortable and better protect your health. The level of humidity can affect the transmission of viruses, as lower levels of humidity have been linked to more severe flu illness.
For a healthier home, you need fresh air. No, fresh air refers not only to the outdoors air, but properly vented, clean, fresh air. The air inside your home can be five times more polluted than the air outside. A ventilation system that can replace your stagnant indoor air with clean air will be beneficial to you and your family.
Finding the best ways to improve your indoor air quality will give you a happier and healthier family. By not only removing dust and allergens but also airborne viruses, staying at home can also mean staying healthy.
