We are all spending more time at home than ever due to the recent pandemic. That means the air in our houses needs to be cleaner than ever, especially considering COVID-19 is an airborne illness. Here are tips for healthy air at home.
1. Clean HVAC Filter
Every HVAC unit comes with a filter. It picks up dust and other unwanted particles in the air. You should make a point to clean the filter whenever the indicator on the unit advises you to. It is a simple process that can prevent the particles picked up by the filter from getting blown back into your residence.
2. No Smoking
You should not allow smoking in your home. The smoke not only goes into the body of the person smoking but also into the air. This means people who have not chosen such a bad habit end up suffering because of what other people do. Smoking can also damage the heart and lungs, even leading to death. If you or someone in your house makes the decision to smoke, make it a rule that they do it outside.
3. Buy an Air Purifier
An air purifier is a device specifically designed to help to keep the air in your home clean. You can put one in high-traffic areas, such as the living room, or in a bedroom. It works by collecting particles within a specific radius (usually no more than about 1,000 feet). You will need to clean the air purifier’s filter, similar to an HVAC unit.
