How McDonald, Air Conditioning, and Plumbing, can protect you from H1N1 virus
If you think the danger from the H1N1 virus (swine flu) is over, think again. It’s getting worse. Until a vaccine is developed, the only way to prevent infection is to avoid contact with the virus.
So far, the only advice coming from the medical community is to take normal precautions; cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, wash your hands often with soap and water, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. That’s sound advice to be sure, but it doesn’t go far enough. That should be your last line of defense.
While these measures may help reduce the spread of the virus, they do nothing to eliminate it. That’s where we can help. We believe a layered defense that utilizes state-of-the-art indoor air quality technology is your best bet.
Layer 1: Attack the Virus, before it attacks you
There is nothing you can put in your home that is more efficient at killing viruses than a Duct-Mounted UV Air Purifier. This unobtrusive unit stays out of sight and out of mind while helping eliminate contaminated air particles that could be circulating throughout your home. It works continuously to destroy the bacteria and viruses that are cycling through your air conditioning or heating system, 100-150 times per 24 hour period.
This is the same technology that’s been proven to reduce infections in operating rooms and is regularly used in infectious disease clinics and laboratories. Using a UV Air Purifier, the H1N1 can be destroyed before it has a chance to infect you or your family. That’s the proactive protection that will keep everyone in your home safe and healthy. That’s peace of mind.
Layer 2: Build an invisible barrier against bacteria and viruses
Your second layer of defense should be your air filter. Regular air filters do nothing to keep you healthy; they’re designed to protect your equipment. An electronic air cleaner is quite different. This specialized filtering system can prevent up to 98% of pollutants from circulating through your home, including mold spores.
Using an EAC in conjunction with a UV air purifier gives you tremendous protection from the harmful particles that make indoor air 5 times more polluted than outdoor air.
Layer 3: Prepare yourself for the fight
Finally, one of the most overlooked factors in the spread of viruses is humidity or lack of it. Your heating system acts as a dehumidifier, and it works really well. In fact, it can lower your humidity to unsafe levels. Low humidity is said to be one of the main reasons that flu is more common in the winter.
The optimum range for indoor humidity is between 40-50%. There’s evidence to suggest that as your sinuses dry up due to low humidity levels, you become more susceptible to infection.
Installing a Whole House Humidifier will bring the humidity levels in your home back to normal. That means your family will be more resistant to any bacteria or viruses that may sneak past your filtering system, and you’ll be less likely to pick up the virus during the course of your day-to-day activities outside your home
