Pay Attention to the Air in Your Home to Protect Yourself from Viruses!

During the winter months, neglecting ventilation in enclosed spaces due to cold weather creates an ideal environment for the spread of diseases and viruses.

As we spend more time indoors, failing to ventilate can invite various allergic conditions as well as viruses. Experts recommend opening windows for at least 15 minutes every 2 hours to ensure proper ventilation and reduce the risk of airborne illnesses, including viruses.

However, simply opening and closing windows shortly after to avoid feeling the cold and maintain the warmth of the house is not sufficient for proper and effective ventilation. Unventilated environments harbor rapidly multiplying fungi, dust mites, molds, bacteria, all of which pose a threat to our health. Droplets emitted through coughing, sneezing, or talking can linger in the air for hours. Therefore, proper ventilation of our homes is crucial during times of outbreaks. Especially if there is a person who is required to leave the house, paying more attention to ventilating enclosed spaces becomes essential.

To ensure your home stays within ideal temperature ranges and to avoid unnecessary energy consumption, refrain from running your air conditioner when your windows are open.

Additionally, to protect yourself from viruses and maintain fresh air in your home, you should also pay attention to the cleanliness of your air conditioner.

You should regularly clean the removable filters of your air conditioners. Moreover, scheduling regular maintenance by authorized technicians during seasonal transitions can extend the lifespan of your device, keep it clean, maintain healthy indoor air quality, and reduce energy consumption.
