Can Air Cleaners Protect My Family from the COVID-19 Delta Variant?

Can Air Cleaners Protect My Family from the COVID-19 Delta Variant?

The emergence of the COVID-19 Delta variant has raised everyone’s concerns over the health and safety of their loved ones and themselves. According to the CDC, the Delta variant is more contagious than the previous strains. While vaccination decreases your risk of developing severe symptoms, other preventative measures–including good home ventilation thanks to an air cleaner installation–can help quickly clear out virus particles from your home.

At Argent Heating & Cooling, nothing is more important to us than your health and safety. Having served the Washington, DC, Metro area for over 30 years, we are proud to continue our high-quality indoor air quality service that ensures you maintain good health during this time. In addition to indoor air quality testing, we offer HVAC, generator, and radiant heating installation and maintenance. 

Below, we discuss how air cleaners can improve the health of your home’s occupants: 

Benefits of Air Cleaner Installation During COVID-19

  • Provides a Healthy Indoor Environment – unfiltered indoor air may contain up to 2-5 times more pollutants than outdoor air. Considering that many people spend more of their time indoors, they may be exposing themselves to dangerous levels of pollutants.

    Our team at Argent Heating & Cooling can provide a list of air purifier recommendations for you to choose from. If you are concerned about your budget, we can help you select the best model to suit your needs.

  • Improves Air Filtration – air cleaners reduce and remove pollutants from within your home and ventilates clean air inside your home. In addition to installing an air cleaner, updating the air filters in your HVAC system can often help improve your overall indoor air quality.

    Poor air filtration in your home may lead to carbon monoxide or radon build-up, which cause lung cancer and other chronic lung diseases. Since carbon monoxide or radon can be found in any home, allow our team to test your home air quality so we can protect your home inhabitants’ health.

  • Boosts Home Comfort – while air cleaners don’t eliminate air pollutants, they can decrease the amount that circulates inside your home. Breathing clean air will lower your chances of contracting the common cold, viral illnesses, and respiratory or cardiac diseases.

Installing air filtration will also give you peace of mind that you are doing what you can–in addition to following current CDC best practices–to stay healthy.
