Covid-19, also referred to as the novel coronavirus, is on everyone's minds at the moment. The way that many people live their lives has changed as a result of this virus, and there is a lot of misinformation and questions that people have related to this virus. If you have an HVAC system or an air conditioning system, you may have many questions about covid-19 and your system. Here are a few of the questions you may have, as well as the answers.
Can Covid-19 Spread Through Ventilation Systems?
At this time, it is not believed that Covid-19 can be spread through ventilation systems, but there is a lot still unknown about how the virus is transmitted. The risk associated with the spread of this disease through these systems is considered low, and the chances of catching the virus through these systems is also considered low. At this time, there are no known cases that have been transmitted through systems such as HVAC systems. As such, you should not be worried if you have a shared system in an apartment or condo building.
What Can You Do to Reduce the Spread of Covid-19 Through Air Conditioning Units?
Social distancing and staying out of shared spaces is the best way to prevent the spread of Covid-19 at this time. In addition to this, ensuring that the filters on your air conditioning unit and the filters where air is circulated into your home are clean are important. These filters can help to filter out dust and dirt particles from entering your home, but they may also help to filter out germs and bacteria.
Are Air Conditioning Services Considered Essential Services?
At this time, many cities, counties and states have shut down non-essential services in order to help with social distancing. If your air conditioning unit is not working or not working correctly, you may wonder if air conditioning services are considered essential or whether they are shut down. Air conditioning services are considered essential services, and as such, are available to serve you, even during this pandemic.
Right now, there are many things that are uncertain. However, air conditioning services are still in business, even in cities and states that have shut down to everything but essential services. If your HVAC or air conditioning unit is not working correctly or you are looking to have your system cleaned, an appointment can be made and a professional can still come out and perform air conditioning services to help ensure your unit is working efficiently and cleanly.
