People’s health is still at the forefront of the news headlines. Whether it’s the seasonal flu, a head cold, or something more serious like the coronavirus, staying healthy is important. Did you know that your HVAC system plays a role in keeping you healthy? No one wants spreading illness! Airborne viruses can spread more easily in buildings that have poor ventilation or in spaces that have HVAC systems that are not maintained regularly.
Poorly ventilated areas have stagnant air. Bacteria and other harmful contaminants like allergens or viruses get trapped in the air. They also re-circulate through the ductwork. That can mean more people get sick. Gross! Here are some ways to help keep the air quality in your home or commercial space great.
#1: Keep air filters replaced and cleaned regularly.
Clean or replace your air filters very other month. This helps not only with helping bring cleaner air inside, but it also helps with efficiency. That means your system doesn’t have to work harder than necessary to do its job. And, your utility bill will be lower and your system will last longer.
#2: Get your system professionally maintained.
Your heating and cooling system needs to be cleaned and serviced annually. This ensures that they are working exactly as they’re supposed to. We check and clean filters and belts, clean coils, run an energy efficiency check, and talk to you about any repairs or adjustments that need to happen.
#3: Consider adding an air purification system.
We provide some air purification system options that will help you breathe the cleanest air possible. The Reme Halo® is one great option.
