Indoor Air Quality Solutions to Protect Your Home from Coronavirus

May 5, 2020 Air Quality

We are already historically the most indoor culture of humankind, spending nearly 90% of our time indoors. We like our safe, comfortable, and securely built homes. But now, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we find ourselves staying home out of need, not just want. While we abide by governing laws to remain in our homes, it is more important than ever that we are sure the air that we breathe is free of pathogens and virus particles that can harm us.

While our attention is focused on limiting the spread of Covid 19 and thinking about the necessary precautions to take in order to reduce our chances of encountering it, the subject of indoor air quality can’t be ignored. We know that the coronavirus spreads mainly through respiratory droplets from sneezing or coughing, and as a result, residual droplets can actually linger in the air, meaning it can potentially travel through your ductwork and infect everyone living in your home. And now, while we stay quarantined in our firmly airtight homes, that germ filled air will have nowhere to escape.

The good news is that smart home technologies and more intelligent HVAC and air purifier systems that ensure healthier air indoor are becoming more and more common. While all smart home products aim to make our lives easier in one way or another, smart HVAC & air purifier systems are specifically designed to offer users healthier, more energy-efficient living spaces and more personalized experiences. To address the issues associated with poor indoor air quality, the most important aspect of any indoor air purification ventilation systems is that they provide access to reliable local air quality data. 

One company that we are partnering with in this wellness space is Pure365. The Clean Air and Water company created an app to go along with their integrated system of hardware and software that both filters and tracks indoor air quality. We think this is especially helpful because it offers you an easy and interactive way track the quality of the air you breath, giving you all the information at your fingertips. The app allows you to compare your indoor air quality to the air outside. It identifies issues that are negatively impacting your health and educates you about pollutants and the harm they can cause which will help you cultivate a healthier lifestyle. Another cool aspect about the app is that it tells you when outdoor air is safe, and when it makes sense to open your windows for fresh air ventilation!  

When home technology brings these systems into your homes, we support you thoroughly. Once we get your Clean Air Purification System installed, we will provide you with clear instruction on how to use the control panel app that provides you with real time data of the air quality that you are breathing in both inside and outside your home. You will have the capability to see exactly how clean your bedroom air is compared to the air in your garage, and the air in your kitchen compared to outside so you can decide whether or not to open the window for some fresh outdoor air. We will put the control in your hands, and you will be able to see the exact quality of the air you and your family is breathing every day.

As we all continue to embrace the challenge of staying home, we want you to be able to live with certainty that your home is the safest and healthiest place to be. We believe air purification provides additional support to your body’s most important tool for fighting viruses—a healthy immune system, It's a passive, 'always-on' way to improve the overall health of a breathing space that doesn’t require major lifestyle changes. By making the decision to reach out and get started with a clean air purification solution installation in your home, you are on your way to achieving this goal and increasing your overall respiratory health.
