Air Quality and Fighting the Flu Season

Monday, October 22nd, 2018

HVACkidAs the cold weather approaches, so does the dreaded flu season. There are good medical methods you can use to prepare for flu season, as well as simple precautions like getting into the habit of regularly washing your hands. But you may not be aware of the ways you can improve your home’s indoor air quality to make it easier to get through flu season without getting sick.

Yes, indoor air quality can play a big part in whether you and other people in your household catch the flu, the cold, or other illnesses during the fall and winter. Once germs and viruses get into your house, they’ll start to circulate through the ventilation system, making is easier for them to spread from person to person. Fresh air can help—but you often don’t want to open your home to outdoor air when it’s cold.

Fortunately, we offer indoor air quality solutions that can help you enjoy a much healthier home this coming flu season.
