What can I do to help keep my family safe?
As the novel coronavirus is being monitored as an airborne illness, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has released guidelines in regard to indoor air quality, commercial buildings, hospitals, and more. So, we know that many healthcare institutions have been putting protocols in place to protect patients, but what about our homes? What about the air our children and families are breathing in?
While you are practicing the essentials to prevent the spread of illnesses such as coronaviruses, by washing your hands, and staying at home while ill, are you unknowingly putting your family at greater risk with improper ventilation from coils that need to be cleaned, filters that haven’t been changed regularly, or humidity levels that help viruses incubate and circulate inside your home?
