How Air Purifiers Can Fight Against Viruses and Bacteria

April 14, 2020

Many diseases can spread through your indoor air. When someone coughs or sneezes, especially without covering the mouth, particles containing viruses and bacteria can enter the air. These saliva particles can stay airborne for extended periods and harbor dangerous diseases. If someone breathes these particles in, he or she can also become infected. Air Purifiers installed directly into your HVAC system can help eliminate poor indoor air quality.

Importance of Proper Ventilation

A properly ventilated home will regularly filter all of the air that passes through it. These highly efficient filters can remove up to 99.9% of the microscopic particles that carry bacteria and viruses. HEPA filters are especially effective at keeping indoor air as clean as possible.

Types of Air Purifiers

Air purifiers can either be installed directly into your HVAC system or can come as individual units. Whole-house systems are highly effective at making sure that each room in your home always has clean air in it. Individual units are great for providing extra protection in areas that receive high levels of use.

Your Current HVAC System

Modern HVAC systems have air filters built into the heating and cooling units. These filters are most effective when they are clean, so they need to be replaced regularly. Having a professional perform regular maintenance on your HVAC system can allow it to keep your air as clean as possible. The maintenance plans offered by Guidry's Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Inc could help stop the spread of disease in your Raceland home.
