Our goal is to make your home as comfortable as possible, whether that’s during the swelter of summer, winter’s biting cold or during a national health crisis like we are currently experiencing.

As we pay added attention to the cleanliness of our homes and offices in our ongoing effort to stop the spread of the new coronavirus and the upper-respiratory illness it causes, COVID-19, air quality must remain part of our consideration.
Can an Air Filtration system remove virus-infected particles from the air?
This is a popular topic. While research suggests that HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air)-rated filters – common in modern HVAC systems – can remove a percentage of particles that carry the coronavirus from the air, air filters will not completely remove potentially infected particles, and an air purification system alone is not a defense against transmission of the disease.

However, research does suggest that because of the way HEPA filters work, they likely remove some infected particles from the air. In any scenario, breathing air free from harmful particles like pollutants, mold, E.Coli Staph, and other bacteria is an important part of overall wellness. One of the best defenses against COVID-19 is a healthy, fully functioning immune system, and a well-ventilated home is part of that solution.
The next generation of indoor air quality Air Filtration Systems.
When thinking about the role your HVAC system plays in preventing exposure to coronavirus and keeping the space around you clean, it’s best to think of it as part of a cumulative effort to stop transmission – a smart, additional consideration on top of the measures you are already taking, like frequently washing hands and disinfecting surfaces.
This pandemic has highlighted how susceptible we can be to airborne pathogens and underscored the need to pay attention to the suitability of our home and work environments. Rather than live in fear, we need to look out for and support one another and our communities, working collaboratively and creatively to stay safe during this time of crisis and return to healthy lives once we get beyond it.
