Keep Airborne Viruses Under Control

Are You Sick?

Overland Park, KS Flu Season TipsIf you’re currently sick, there may be a wide array of reasons why this is the case. Maybe you contracted an illness in your Overland Park home, and you didn’t even know it.

Many find it hard to believe that they can contract an illness inside their home because they always believe that it’s someone outside of their home that has given it to them.

Remember, germs, fungus, and bacteria are all something that resides in the air, and this air can easily get into your HVAC system, causing you to get sick.

The only reason you would get sick from airborne illnesses that have gone into your HVAC system is because you likely don’t have a very good filter that was able to catch these germs.

A filter is made to catch over 99% of the pathogens in the air, including dust, and this can help to keep the air flowing throughout your Overland Park home very clean.

A poorly functioning HVAC system can easily allow persons in the home to get sick or to spread any illness that one person in the home has to other persons in the home. Your first defense against airborne illnesses is to make sure your HVAC system is functioning to the best of its ability.

Check Your HVAC System

Do you have a new filter in your HVAC system? Are the ducts cleaned? Are the vents clear and open? Is dust on the air vents that is blowing air throughout the home?

It’s a good idea to ask yourself all these questions and to make sure that your HVAC system has been clean, maintained, and is functioning.

Those with a poorly functioning HVAC system will know it because they may have poor airflow; they may end up with more allergies or airborne illnesses, and it’s also possible that the system may not be blowing air at all.

Get A Pro on the Job

Getting a professional is the best choice when dealing with an HVAC system that isn’t working properly or needs maintenance. Many do not know that an HVAC system should be checked every year, and some will go years without having their system checked.

Don’t wait until it’s too late to have a professional check and maintain your unit, especially when the weather is extreme outside. A professional will be able to change the air filters, clean the unit, check for cracks and breaks, and keep the unit running smoothly.
