Sitting inside your home day after day might have you thinking about your indoor air quality. HVAC contractors have the job of protecting your indoor air quality and ensuring it’s safe as well as comfortable.
It extends beyond your home, and into the stores you’re currently shopping in as well. HVAC - heating, ventilation, and air conditioning - controls every aspect of creating a comfortably conditioned environment.
Right now, we’re living in uncertain times. The biggest question about the coronavirus is how it’s transmitted from one person to the next. Authorities believe that is person to person transmission. It’s shared by way of droplets with people in close proximity to one another.
That’s why the six feet rule is so important.
If a sick person coughs or sneezes, the droplets can spread from one to another. The droplets may also be transferable if they move from a hand, to a doorknob, and back to another hand, for example.
Yet the one thing they aren’t sure of yet, is how long the disease is viable, and if it has the potential for airborne transmission. If droplets can survive in the air, and can be transferred via air movement, that means it’s more important than ever - for both residential and commercial use - to consider how safe your ventilation system works.
The most important part of your ventilation system in this process is the air filter. If it works well, they trap particulates and contaminants before they are filtered back into the air supply. If you can’t remember when yours was last changed, now is the time.
