COVID-19 and IAQ Health Concerns

COVID-19 is the name for the disease caused by the current novel coronavirus. It affects the respiratory system, and it is sometimes erroneously compared to the flu virus. However, COVID-19 is more easily transmitted and deadlier than the flu.

Mounting evidence suggests that COVID-19 can go airborne inside the home and even contaminate an HVAC system and IAQ health. Follow government suggestions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and consult your HVAC provider for tips to help keep your IAQ health and HVAC system as free from airborne pollutants as possible.
