Are You Doing All You Can To Protect Your Family From Viruses, Bacteria, and Allergies?

We’ve all heard that when it comes to avoiding contact with viruses, we need to wash our hands, cover our nose and mouth with a tissue when we cough or sneeze, and avoid touching our eyes, nose, and mouth.

That’s sound advice, but it doesn’t go far enough. While these measures may help reduce the spread of the virus, they do nothing to eliminate it. That’s where UV air purifiers, electronic air cleaners, and whole-house humidifiers can help. A layered defense system that utilizes state-of-the-art Indoor Air Quality technology is your best bet as it not only protects your family from viruses and bacteria, but it’s also an excellent mechanism to ward off allergies in your home.

Attack the Virus Before It Attacks You

One of the most effective solutions for killing viruses is a duct-mounted UV Air Purifier. This unobtrusive unit stays out of sight and out of mind while helping eliminate contaminated air particles that could be circulating throughout your home. It works continuously to destroy the bacteria and viruses that are cycling through your air conditioning or heating system, up to 100-150 times per 24 hour period.

This is the same technology that’s been proven to reduce infections in operating rooms and is regularly used in infectious disease clinics and laboratories. Using a UV Air Purifier, viruses can be destroyed before it has a chance to infect you or your family. That’s proactive protection that will help keep everyone in your home safe and healthy. That’s peace of mind.

Build an Invisible Barrier Against Bacteria and Viruses

Your second layer of defense should be your air filter. Regular air filters do nothing to keep you healthy; they’re designed to protect your equipment. An Electronic Air Cleaner (EAC) is quite different. This specialized filtering system can prevent up to 98% of pollutants from circulating through your home, including mold spores.

Using an EAC in conjunction with a UV Air Purifier gives you tremendous protection from the harmful particles that can make indoor air up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air.

Prepare Yourself for the Fight

Finally, one of the most overlooked factors in the spread of viruses is humidity, or lack of it. Your heating system acts as a dehumidifier, and it works really well. In fact, it can lower your humidity to unhealthy levels. Low humidity is said to be one of the main reasons the flu is more common in the winter.

According to Air Conditioning Contractor’s of America (ACCA), the optimum range for indoor humidity is between 30-60%. There’s evidence to suggest that as your sinuses dry up due to low humidity levels, you become more susceptible to infection.

Installing a Whole-House Humidifier will bring the humidity levels in your home back to normal. That means your family will be more resistant to any bacteria or viruses that may sneak past your filtering system, and you’ll be less likely to pick up the virus during the course of your day-to-day activities outside your home.
