Your HVAC and the Flu Season

Believe it or not, there are things you can do in regards to your HVAC in order to prevent sickness. Your HVAC will be running throughout cold and flu season, so why not use it to your advantage and help fight bacterial and viral illness!

Use an air cleaner: HVAC’s are designed to filter larger particles that could potentially harm the equipment, however it doesn’t not improve air quality. In order to do this, you can set up an air cleaner to work alongside your HVAC! These air cleaners can remove up to 99% of germs.

Purchase a whole home humidifier: Germs and bacteria thrive in a low humidity environment, so it’s a good idea to get a whole home humidifier. This will lower your risk of spreading airborne viruses and work with your HVAC to allow the proper level of moisture into your home.

Get a UV Light: UV lights have been proven to kill bacteria and keep air clean. A UV light can be attached to your HVAc system to help eliminate germs and curb sickness.
