One factor perhaps increasing your vulnerability to illnesses is your indoor air quality. Bacteria and viruses can travel through the air, causing and worsening illnesses. When someone sneezes or coughs, the airborne particles spread through the air, landing on surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches and water faucets.
According to the American Lung Association, poor air circulation in crowded conditions may accelerate spreading. Overly damp, muggy air can increase the indoor survival rate and many will circulate indefinitely through poorly maintained ventilation systems.
Let us perform maintenance on your furnace and air conditioner or heat pump. Our continuously trained and NATE-certified technicians will inspect, clean and lubricate all components, eliminating a lot of the dust and debris clogging and circulating through your system.
Consider installing one of the following from Apollo Home:
Whole Home Humidifier
If your home tends to be especially dry in the winter, you will actually benefit from more humidity in your air. Dry nasal passages and sinuses are more susceptible to invasive virus and bacteria spores.
Whole Home Dehumidifier
Summer colds are the worst! If your home leans toward the humid side, based on location, you may want to complement your current HVAC system with a Dehumidifier to reduce the amount of humidity. Moderating the amount to an appropriate level will increase your comfort level and reduce the proliferation of dust mites, which may aggravate loved ones with allergies or respiratory illnesses.
Media Air Cleaner
As air flows through your HVAC system, the Media Air Cleaner traps particles as small as 1.0 micron, including pollen, dust and dander. They are capable of cleaning large amounts of air while operating quietly.
UltraViolet Air Purifier
These amazing units use the power of ultraviolet light to kill airborne particulates as they pass through your ventilation systems, reducing the amount finding their way throughout your home.
Invest in an Apollo Home Care Plan to properly maintain your air conditioner and furnace or heat pump. Proper maintenance will keep your components clean and performing at their optimal efficiency.
