Important Information Regarding the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
If you have air conditioning or hot air heating you will have an air filtration system or air filter. During this time of uncertainty, it is important that this filter gets replaced or sprayed with Lysol disinfectant spray at least once a week. Your air filter is a location that bacteria, virus and mold collect on. An added benefit would be while the filter is removed to put your thermostat’s fan setting to the on position and spray the Lysol into the grill or duct for 10 seconds, this will help disperse the spray throughout the duct system and air around as well. Also, research suggests that increased humidification has a large impact on reducing the transmission of some airborne virus, as will the level of filtration within a ventilation system.
We strongly suggest that sometime prior to the summer to get your air conditioning coil, and condensate pan chemically cleaned.
