Local Businesses and Indoor Air Quality

Is your local business ready to re-open with the rest of the state? Virginians are ready to get back to work and to restart the economy. Under Governor Northam’s orders, “phase one” of Virginia’s reopen strategy started on Friday, May 15, 2020. With COVID-19 still hanging around, extra sanitation methods are being put into place. Masks, handwashing, and Clorox wipes are the most popular and cheapest ways to prevent the spread. 

However, it may be time to consider an air quality product that can help fight and kill viruses and bacteria. A recent CBS News story about COVID-19 discussed how indoor ventilation impacts the spread of the virus. One expert stated, “when a virus is caught up in an airstream it has the potential to move much farther than six feet.” While social distancing is an important part in preventing the spread, it appears as though air purification is a key component to staying healthy. 

While there are many products available, there are a couple that we will highlight below. 

  1. APCO In-Duct Air Purifier

This self cleaning, maintenance free product can be attached to your existing unit. 


 

  1. Aprilaire Products

You can control when and how the air purifier works based on your preferences. Other air purifiers only work when your heating and air conditioning system is running.

We hope that you are staying safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the reopening of Virgina, we want to partner with local businesses to help prevent the spread of the virus.
