Winter season means sick season in more ways than the obvious. Clearly, harmful pathogens and germs populate a home like unwelcome pests but there are other harmful toxins that can infect a home. Luckily, QuietCool whole house fans help fend off most airborne pollutants and improve the health of any home they are in.
A lot of the sickness that spreads quickly and devastatingly during winter is due to living areas and offices being completely sealed up. Rarely are windows open during the winter. So, buildings have no opportunity to flush out the airborne pathogens that are present.
With a QuietCool whole house fan, you can rapidly exchange the air in your home with fresh air from outside. In fact, they are able to accomplish this because their powerful motor completes 15-22 air exchanges every hour! Doing this in the middle of the day during winter will not only warm your house but will push out a lof the airborne pathogens that may exist in the home.
The Women’s Health Magazine said that “Even in the winter, cracking your window a few inches to increase airflow is a good idea. This is especially important if someone is in your home.” If this is true, just imagine how well a system that purposely brings fresh air in could help!
The possibility for harmful gasses increases during the winter as well. This is due to the number of gas appliances that are used. Gas could possibly be used for heaters, ovens, water heaters, and fireplaces. All of this gas in a home could culminate in deadly gasses filling it or even increases the likelihood of smoke filling it. If either of these became present in a home, turning on a QuietCool would quickly usher out much it. This not only is great in times of need but is reassuring in a way few other systems are.
During winter, sickness is hard to run from. So, instead of running, push sickness and harmful toxins out of your home before they get to you.
