With 2020 behind us, we can all agree that we’re hoping for a happier and healthier 2021.
And there’s no better place to start on that journey than with Healthy Air for you and your family. Whether the new year means a new home, renovating your current home, or continuing to enjoy the home you’ve already made, all of us are looking to make our home as safe as possible.
One of the most frequent questions we get is – “Is there anything that I can do to make my home safer for COVID?”
It can be summed up neatly in this quote: “Everybody is inundated right now with the shiny new solutions that are being sold to them,” Dr. Joseph Allen said. “And the reality is, it’s a time for the basics.” While there are many solutions available to homeowners today, the simple solutions will work to turn any building into a healthy building with a few smart changes. You don’t need a fancy blue blub in your duct.
For almost any existing home, the right renovations can turn your space into a Healthy Home in no time with three key updates:
Fresh Air Ventilation – Think of your ductwork as a set of lungs. The Fresh Air System helps those lungs to breathe easier. It is constantly moving air throughout your home. By bringing in metered fresh outdoor air into your system in a controlled manner and pushing out stagnant, polluted indoor air we can dilute and remove contaminants throughout your home.
Air Filtration – Now that there is fresh air in your home, it’s time to purify it. An whole-home air purification system, (paired with the right air filters), can capture up to 99% of airborne particles the size of viruses while preventing other contaminants from lingering in your home. This can be paired with a ionizer to increase the effectiveness of filters and break down harmful gases or pathogens in the air.
Humidity Control – It’s important to keep your home’s humidity between 30% and 60% both for your own comfort and for the longevity of your home. Depending on which you’re looking to combat—dry or damp air— whole-home humidification as well as whole-home dehumidification can help you maintain a Healthy Home.
