Don’t Let Colds and Flu Ruin Your Days at Home
How to Prevent a Cold and the Flu?
The cold season is not over yet, and March is one of the months when most people get sick. Since viruses that cause these two respiratory problems are airborne can collect in your HVAC system. So, your HVAC can play a crucial role in getting you sick. Check out the below tips to prevent this from happening.
Use Your HVAC System
Saving money by not running your heating system is good for your pocket, but not necessarily for your health. When the air in your home does not circulate for an extended period, bacteria and airborne viruses stick around, increasing the chances for you to get infected. Run your HVAC system to avoid this from happening.
Buy a Whole House Humidifier
Dry air is the culprit of virus development. With a whole house humidifier, you can distribute moisture throughout your home evenly. This device attaches to your water line and mounts in your HVAC system. Further, a whole house humidifier will help you reduce other cold symptoms like congestion, scratchy voice, sore throat, among others.
Get a Portable Humidifier
If a whole house humidifier is not an option, you can get a portable humidifier. It will add humidity to the area directly around it. Just remember to clean it frequently to avoid spreading viruses and other undesired elements into the air.
Install a Quality Air Purifier
Having a superior air filtration system installed in your home, not only makes for a cleaner house, it provides a healthier living environment. Experts recommend installing a whole-house air purifier to work in conjunction with your existing furnace filter. In this way, you can significantly reduce particulates in the air such as bacteria, dander, and dust, mold spores, pollen, and any other contaminants.
