Ahhchoo! God bless you! That unfortunate time is here again, the dreaded flu season. According to The Weather Channel, the flu has been “widespread” in Michigan. We are aware of all of the traditional preventative measures and remedies such as getting a flu vaccine, drinking lots of orange juice, getting plenty of sleep and washing your hands. Did you know that there are some other ways in your home to prevent the flu as well?
Electronic Air Cleaners
Electronic air purifiers such as the Bryant Perfect Air Purifier can trap and kill the influenza virus. This means that this electronic air purifier can actually remove the flu from your home thereby preventing further or any infection.
Having a humidifier in your home can definitely make your life easier especially if you are congested or waking up with dry sore throats. However, humidifiers can do more than just that to help you. The flu is most likely to thrive in really humid or really dry climates (above 98% or below 50% humidity). Built-in whole home humidifiers can easily be controlled on either a humidistat or your regular thermostat. You can easily determine the percentage of humidity that you want in your home and keep your home out of that “flu danger zone,” especially during the dry winter months.
So there you have it, two home improvements that will not only better your indoor air quality, but also protect you and your family from the flu. If you have family members that are particularly susceptible, such as young children or older people, these could definitely be important features to consider having in your home.
