Indoor Air Quality in Fort Collins
Keeping your indoor humidity between 43-57% is ideal, as midrange humidity levels stop the spread of airborne pathogen in three ways:
1. When air is too dry, large droplets don’t fall to the ground as quickly as they normally would. Instead, they dry out to become smaller droplets, which float in the air longer.
2. Airbone viruses that thrive in winter, like coronaviruses, simply aren’t as infectious when they float through moister air — whatever tools the viruses use to be virulent are somehow stunted.
3. Your respiratory immune system just works better in greater humidity.
Most HVAC systems use lower-quality air filters, which may catch 20-40% of viruses passing through your home. HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters can catch up to 99% of the airborne viruses in your home by forcing air through a fine mesh that traps harmful particles such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and tobacco smoke; which can stay inside the air in your home more than outside. An EPA study states that indoor air environments are at least 2-5x more polluted that outside air.
UV / Ion Emitting Equipment
UV light air purifiers work quite simply. They are designed to use UV lamps that alter the DNA of microorganisms and inactivate or destroy them.
UV light air purifiers are generally a combination of a forced air system and another filter (like a HEPA filter). As a result, the UV light of the air purifier acts together with other processes to clean the air. Ambient, in-house air is forced through the unit and ventilated through a chamber with bulbs emitting light within the UV-C frequency.
Healthy Air. Healthy Home.
