Keep Those Airbone Viruses Under Control This Season

Keep Those Airbone Viruses Under Control This Season

According to experts, Americans spend 70-90 percent of their time indoors. As a result, more of them have become prone to getting sick from airborne viruses. This is due to their constantly breathing in contaminated air that is recirculated through aBrenham home's HVAC system, which allows the virus to develop a stronghold in the environment and gain strength.

However, as more and more people are becoming aware of this, new and improved methods have been developed to keep fresh air circulating within a home. To keep airborne viruses under control in your home, here are some suggestions you may want to try.

For many HVAC systems, the humidifiers are perhaps the most important part of the system when it comes to keeping a home's air fresh and clean. However, if these humidifiers are not regularly maintained by a qualified HVAC technician, mold and other bacteria can grow on them and harbor many airborne viruses.

To keep this from happening, set up a regular maintenance schedule with your HVAC company to ensure the system is working properly year-round.

Installed on many of today's modern HVAC systems, air-to-air heat exchangers provide a number of ways to help control airborne viruses in a home. For example, they remove stale, warm air from a home and replace it with cooler, fresher air that can circulate throughout the home. By doing so, airborne viruses never get the chance to settle down and take hold in any room in the house.

Since filters are designed to trap mold, bacteria, and other contaminants that enter a home, failing to have the filters of a furnace or HVAC system inspected and changed regularly can have a negative impact on the health of a home's residents. By ignoring filter maintenance, airborne viruses are given numerous opportunities to stay in the home and inflict damage on the residents. To make sure this doesn't happen, use high-efficiency filters and have a service technician inspect them annually.

While many people have exhaust fans in bathrooms or kitchens, they fail to use them on a regular basis. Because of this, airborne viruses are able to continue circulating through Brenham homes, eventually making everyone there sick. To keep this from occurring, use the existing exhaust fans regularly and consider having others installed in laundry rooms or exercise rooms where conditions can get warm and moist.
