Quarantine & Your HVAC System: What You Should Know

As the world continues to fight COVID-19 and face the challenges that come with a global pandemic, we understand that times are tough. Since everyone is spending more time at home to do their part to help slow the spread of the virus, our team at Beach Air HVAC has come up with a few tips to help you maintain good air quality and stay comfortable, safe, and healthy while at home. 

Change Your Air Filter Often

The air in your home is cycled through your home’s HVAC system and your air filter traps harmful bacteria and keeps the air clean. If you have pets, a large family, or allergies a clean air filter will help keep the air fresh and clean. We suggest changing your filter at least once a month. 

Open a Window

Your HVAC system doesn’t necessarily bring in the freshest air. Crack a window or sliding door to let some fresh air into your home. If you have a screen to block insects and debris, we suggest using that. 

Take Off Your Shoes

As minute at this may seem, it’s very important! Your shoes carry so much bacteria and every time you wear shoes in your house, you’re inviting those germs to live on your floors and carpet. Taking your shoes off at the door is the best way to keep the germs away.

Use A Throw Blanket

While it’s best to keep your thermostat on a set temperature, you still might get a little chilly. Instead of turning your thermostat up a few degrees, just grab a throw blanket or put on some sweats!

Do Laundry Often

While trying to keep germs to a minimum, your clothes can carry them too. After going to the store or running errands, we suggest changing clothes and keep the laundry going to avoid these contaminants from reaching your HVAC system. 

Keep Surfaces Clean

Disinfect and wipe down all common surfaces like counters, tables, gadgets, floors, carpets, etc. This will help keep dust and other particles from building up and entering your HVAC system. 

Overall, we hope everyone is staying safe, healthy, and sane while at home. If you need any assistance with your HVAC system during this time, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team!
