In the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, wearing masks and physical distancing have become the norm. Furthermore, hand hygiene and the sanitation of living spaces have become more than just personal habits: they’ve turned into health requirements to keep everyone, whether friend, family or neighbor, safe from the virus.
According to the World Health Organization, the novel coronavirus is primarily transmitted between people through respiratory droplets (particles that are >5-10 microns in diameter) and contact routes.
While airborne transmission of COVID-19 doesn’t usually occur in the typical household setting, it still pays to ensure good indoor air quality. Here Premier Comfort, a trusted provider of premier heating and cooling, shares some of the ways you can maintain clean air inside your home.
Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers are mainly responsible for balancing indoor moisture. That said, humidifiers can improve comfort inside your home by adding moisture to the air, which generally aids in preventing static, dry skin and sore throats. These systems can also positively affect your health since they can prevent germs and bacteria from spreading.
Whole-house air purification systems can treat 100% of the air flowing through different types of HVAC units, effectively removing bacteria, viruses, pollen and mold from the air before it circulates throughout your house. Individuals with allergies or asthma can benefit the most from these purifiers and filters.
UV lamps have gained even more popularity in recent months. They offer a convenient way of removing viruses, bacteria and other irritants that can be circulated into your indoor air. They’re typically easy to install so you can stop viruses and bacteria without fuss.
