Fresh Air Is the Best Defense
The coronavirus enters the body through the lungs from where it starts its deadly journey through the system. The cleaner the air at home, the safer your family. According to the American Lung Association “Like the lungs, homes need to be able to breathe to make sure that fresh air comes in and dirty air goes out. The air indoors can build up high levels of moisture, odor, gases, dust, and other air pollutants. To keep the air indoors safe, fresh outdoor air is needed to dilute these indoor pollutants.”
Homes often do not get the fresh air they need. The reasons for this are many and include architectural constraints that limit the number of windows, physical obstructions such as other buildings in the vicinity that restrict air circulation, seasonal and climatic considerations that may require only a minimum number of windows to be left open, security considerations, etc. However, there is a single solution for all the aforementioned problems and that is to install a whole-house fan.
