Do Air Conditioners Spread COVID-19: True or False?

The year 2021 is fast approaching – and there are still coronavirus cases all over the world. With the virus at large – people are afraid to go out of their homes, making it difficult for human interaction. Parties and outdoor activities are prohibited, restaurant reservations are tight, and get-togethers become harder than you think. COVID-19 has been affecting lives for over a year now, making everything harder every day. People have to stay indoors, and by that, it means remote work, online classes, and lots of time in the air conditioning. It is tiring and boring, right?  Keep tight and hang on – the world is going back to the way it used to.

"We are afraid" - true or false?

A new understanding has come into the light of how the coronavirus may be spreading leaving many minds to wonder whether it is safe to use the air conditioning unit amidst the pandemic.

So, does the air conditioning system partake in the spreading of coronavirus you may ask? In all honesty, it is not entirely clear yet – especially when it comes to indoor spaces that are too crowded. But there are other options you can do to lower the perceived risk for coronavirus inside your home at a healthy and comfortable level all day long.

Coronavirus? Not today! Not ever!

When it comes to maintaining good indoor air quality, temperature, and humidity – heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system is on your top list. A well-maintained system can help reduce the spread of the virus inside your home. Keep in mind that recirculation modes in your air conditioning systems should not be used. Keeping your system’s air handler clean is also very important, and with the help of a UV light, regular maintenance, and ductwork sanitation you have nothing to worry about. 

Inspection and maintenance. Cost aside, the only and the most prominent reason for all HVAC inspections and maintenance is your safety. In the middle of this pandemic, safety is gold and, so is your health. Routine inspection and maintenance for your air conditioning unit can help in an efficient, safe, and effective year of use. A good-working HVAC system is a breath for life, leaving you no problems, just comfort, and care.

Clean air conditioning unit. The build-up of dirt and molds in your air conditioning unit can lead to health problems, making your air, not a healthy environment. Running your air conditioning unit should not be a problem, especially if you are with the same people every minute of every day. A clean and neat HVAC system at home is the care anyone wants right now – no more sneezing, sniffling, and coughing due to pollutants in the air. Regular cleaning of the air conditioning unit can help in keeping your family safe amidst this pandemic while feeling comfortable and fresh all day long.
