And if the home is sick, its occupants may be as well.
While the HVAC system alone cannot prevent the transmission of coronavirus, the industry’s professional association ASHRAE (The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers) has recommended fresh air ventilation, filtration (which includes purification) and humidity control to help a home’s HVAC system reduce infectious airborne particulate.
The Solution...Supply Ventilation
Supply Ventilation, is defined by bringing fresh air into the home using the existing HVAC duct system.
- The best system for most applications that offers the most flexibility, and control.
- It’s rapidly becoming code in new construction all across America.
- Positive (supply) ventilation pressurizes the home from a single point.
- Positive (supply) ventilation forces sick air out of the building envelope.
BY FAR the type of ventilation that provides the best, fresh, healthy, and clean air to its occupants.
Almost everything in our homes from carpet, paint, glues, and even the wood products are either made from or contain chemicals. These chemicals can off gas or release, which builds up in our homes. Complicating the issue further, every breath that is exhaled (family members and pets) contain carbon dioxide and moisture. These too can build up in the home and create issues with the air we breathe.
Common Household Issues That Can Be Improved With Proper Ventilation...
- Sick home syndrome
- Higher than normal moisture
- Increased disease transmission potential
- Increased odors
- Stale or musty air
- Increased contaminant concentrations
