Can Your HVAC System Protect Against COVID-19?

Colorado is starting to open up again under Colorado’s “safer at home” coronavirus protocols. Gradually, certain businesses will start coming back, being able to service customers, albeit a different set of rules.

HVAC services fell under “essential”, but we understand you might have been putting some of your home maintenance routines aside for when all of this is over. Now may be your time.

Can Your HVAC System Protect Against COVID-19?According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19 is a fast-moving virus that is impacting people all over the world. While symptoms range from a common cold to severe respiratory distress, we’re still working through the best ways to move forward. We know that the coronavirus spreads through respiratory droplets, which is why it’s important to cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze.

Your HVAC equipment is designed to do more than heat and cool your air. It’s also designed to keep your indoor air quality healthy. Have you ever noticed colds stick around more when you’re pumping heat through your home on the coldest of days? There’s a reason for that.

If your HVAC equipment isn’t in good shape, dust, dirt, pollutants, and other problems move through the ventilation system and impact your air.

Indoor air quality equipment you may want to consider include:

  • Whole house humidifiers and dehumidifiers to keep the moisture in your home at a proper level
  • Whole house air filtration to trap dirt, pollen, dander, and other pollutants
  • Whole house air purifiers designed to eliminate dirt, pollen, dander, and other pollutants from your home
  • Ultraviolet (UV) Lamps that provide antibacterial light to help eliminate mold spores, mildew, bacteria, and viruses from the air supply

Until we have a vaccine and other countermeasures to reduce the impact of COVID-19, we all have to do our part.
