Improving Your Air Quality This Cold and Flu Season

Improving Your Air Quality This Cold and Flu Season

Did you know by improving your air quality this cold and flu season you minimize your risk of developing respiratory illnesses, increase your immunity, and help to prevent contagious viruses from spreading rapidly throughout your home or business? In this article Trane shares some insight into the importance of your indoor air quality and how it can make a big difference for your health.

Why Indoor Air Quality Matters

Indoor air quality plays an important role in your overall health and wellbeing. If you face poor indoor air quality on a consistent basis, overtime you might experience a wide variety of health issues, such as respiratory problems, headaches, allergy symptoms, and more — and that’s just from the particulates in the air on a typical day. Flu season adds another contagious virus into the mix that can impact your health.

By working to improve your indoor air quality, you’re working to minimize viruses like the flu from the air you breathe, resulting in cleaner and healthier air that can make a difference in your life. Indoor air quality is especially important for members of vulnerable populations, such as children, elderly people, people with allergies and asthma, and people with pre-existing health conditions, as poor indoor air quality can have an even bigger impact on those with already compromised immune systems. Starting the process of minimizing indoor air pollution only takes a few small steps, but can result in substantial changes for your health and home.

Indoor Air Quality Products That Help Fight the Flu

You don’t want cold and flu virus particles in your home or in your body, so it’s a good idea to prepare your home with indoor air quality purification tactics. Trane’s indoor air quality products can help you combat the flu and other viruses in your home, so you can lessen your chances of catching an airborne virus. These systems can be easily installed, plus they work quickly and efficiently once they’re in your home, so all you have to do is sit back, relax, and take in the fresh air.

Trane CleanEffects® Whole Home Air Cleaner

The Trane CleanEffects® Whole Home Air Cleaner is a whole home solution for cleaner, healthier air. This air cleaner is proven to remove Influenza A and 99.98% of airborne pollutants as small as 0.3 microns, such as mold spores, bacteria, allergens, pollen and more. That makes the Trane CleanEffects® Whole Home Air Cleaner eight times more effective than HEPA filters and up to 100 times more effective than traditional one inch air filters. To effectively clean the air, the CleanEffects® Air Cleaner utilizes a pre-filter to trap larger particles. For the harder to catch, fine particulates, CleanEffects® uses patented field charger and collection cell technology. This technology applies an electric charge to the smallest particles in the air, allowing the CleanEffects® to work like a magnet and remove them from the air stream.

Not only can this technology reduce flu virus particles from the air in your home during flu season, but homeowners can use it to enjoy cleaner air year-round. The Trane CleanEffects® Whole Home Air Cleaner has earned an asthma and allergy friendly® certification from the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America, which means it has met rigorous testing requirements that indicate it provides improved indoor air quality.

Not to mention, this air cleaning system can be installed with many existing HVAC systems, meaning it can easily help purify the air while other components of the system work to heat or cool your home. Plus, the CleanEffects® reusable filter can be easily cleaned — no pesky filter replacements required. All this to say, adding a state-of-the-art CleanEffects® air cleaner to your HVAC system can help you breathe easier.
