Healthy Air Solutions
A & A Companies is proud to install Aprilaire Healthy Air Solutions including air cleaners, air filters, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and ventilation products to help protect our customers from the spread of the Coronavirus and other airborne viruses like the flu or common cold in their home. Aprilaire has been a proud member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) for more than 50 years.
Due to the spread of Coronavirus and respiratory infections, there is an increased conversation surrounding the topics of health and safety, especially indoor air quality and the promotion of Healthy Air. Many of our customers are looking for options to protect themselves not only from the Coronavirus but from other airborne viruses like the common cold and the flu.
The ASHRAE Position on airborne infectious disease focuses on properly applied ventilation, air filtration, and humidity control.
Fresh Air Ventilation
Having a properly functioning whole-home ventilation system is critical to maintaining a healthy home environment. Fresh air is not only clean and refreshing but ventilation also helps dilute and remove contaminants.
Homeowners should use a ventilation system to bring in fresh air from the outside to dilute stagnant indoor air. The air inside the home can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. A & A Companies can install a fresh air ventilation system that can bring in the recommended amount of fresh air. These systems have patented control logic to minimize energy usage. Coupling these systems with an IAQ thermostat allows our homeowners to easily adjust the amount of fresh air being brought into their home.
Proper filtration of both the air in your home and incoming ventilation air is key to removing particulates from the air.
According to the United States National Library of Medicine National Institute of Health, the coronavirus nominally has a particle size of 0.13 microns and most airborne viruses range from 0.03 to 0.3 microns.
Aprilaire’s MERV 16 Allergy & Asthma Filters provide the highest rate of effectiveness. They can capture up to 96%* of airborne particles the size of viruses.
We can also explain to you the benefits of an Aprilaire Electronic Air Cleaner and how it is an effective product to capture airborne viruses. It is up to 90%* efficient at trapping airborne virus-size particles.
Healthy Humidity Solutions
Proper Humidity reduces the transmission of viruses. ASHRAE promotes keeping humidity between 30-60% to minimize virus survival rates. We have both humidifier and dehumidifier options to help keep your home between this optimal range.
Whole-Home Product Control
There are whole-home products that work with Aprilaire IAQ thermostats to provide an easy user experience and control through the thermostat and Aprilaire app.
A & A Companies is here to help combat airborne viruses and particulates in your home with Aprilaire Products. These products are not only manufactured in the United States, but the engineers and manufacturers maintain the highest standards in design and assembly.
Please note: Aprilaire products installed by A & A Companies are not intended to cure or treat any known airborne viruses but can help in the reduction of airborne viruses in your home.
