Because of the threat of the coronavirus epidemic, I feel anxious about the cleanliness and health of my home.
I became convinced that I needed to get more proactive with it. I started with the filters of the furnace and the a/c system. I think that a lot of contaminants are introduced into the breathing air by way of the heating and cooling system. I thought that the air pollution could be reduced by purchasing higher quality air filters and also replacing them more often. I found that the more overpriced air filters supply a higher MERV rating. This tells you that they feature much smaller holes and trap more dust and other particles. What I didn’t know is that these tiny holes abruptly become clogged with debris. Once the filter is dirty, air can no longer pass through the mesh. This creates a large problem for the furnace and a/c, and unless I wanted to change filters out every week, I needed to try a unusual approach. I did some research and l acquired that the air filter currently in the system is designed to better protect the furnace and a/c from contamination. The filter helps to keep the unit clean and running a lot more efficiently. It doesn’t do much for indoor air quality. As I read further, I acquired wisdom about the unusual air quality products on the market. There are air cleaners, UV air purifiers, germicidal UV lights, ventilators, and small humidifiers and dehumidifiers. The numerous air quality options can be incorporated into the central heating and cooling system to treat the air as it passes through. I chose an ductless UV air purifier that uses positive and negative ions to disrupt the DNA of pathogens and causes particles to clump together and fall out of the air. The system is silent, requires no repair and it has been proven effective against particular strains of the coronavirus.
