How HVAC Equipment Can Improve Your Health
At NW HVAC Heating and Cooling Service, we know everyone is coping with the emergence of COVID-19. Your safety is our number one priority, and we want to ensure that your indoor air quality as is good as it can be, while also providing maximum energy efficiency.
To help, our Vancouver HVAC contractors have outlined a few ways how air quality can help improve your health and some ways you can help combat the spread of COVID-19.
Health & Air Quality
Did you know that indoor air quality is one of the biggest environmental risks to your health? When you consider how many of us are spending even more time indoors, you want to be certain that your HVAC system is in working order and providing you with the best air quality possible.
There is nothing worse than sneezing and coughing as soon as you come home, and if you do, chances are it may have something to with your indoor air quality (IAQ).
HVAC Equipment Can Keep You Healthy
The right indoor air quality system can help kill bacteria, improve humidity levels, eliminate stale air, and lower allergens. For many homes, your HVAC systems are incorporated with your property’s ductwork.
Such products like in-duct air purifiers can eliminate dust and pollen from your entire home. Products like whole-house humidifiers/dehumidifiers can help control the humidity levels in your home, which can also combat potential mold growth due to high humidity levels.
Also, changing your furnace and HVAC filters can help lower the amount of dust and allergens in your home when your Air conditioner is working this summer. Be sure to periodically check them and replace them when needed.
Go the Extra Mile
While keeping your home’s air quality is important for your health, there are some things you can do to help combat the spread to COVID-19 and keep your home and family safe. COVID-19 not only can be transferred via saliva particles, but it also can live on different surfaces like doorknobs, boxes, and many other things.
The World Health Organization (WHO) advise:
- Conscientiously wash your hands
- Stay home if you feel sick
- Maintain proper social distance when outside
- Do not to touch your eyes, mouth, or nose, until you have washed your hands
- Wipe door handles and light switches when possible
