The CDC has specifically recommended four things you can do at home to combat viruses from spreading and getting worse:
- 1. Clean hands at the door and at regular intervals
- 2. Create habits and reminders to avoid touching your face and cover coughs and sneezes
- 3. Disinfect surfaces like doorknobs, tables, and handrails regularly
- 4. Increase ventilation by opening windows
They aren’t the only organization that encourages ventilation to improve indoor air quality and reduce the likelihood of the spread of disease. According to the Lung Association, effective ventilation may also help keep bacteria, viruses and other pollutants out of the indoor air. Research shows that airflow and ventilation can alter how diseases spread indoors. The more stagnant the air is, the more likely diseases are to spread. Like the lungs, homes need to be able to breathe to make sure that fresh air comes in and dirty air goes out. Indoor air can build up high levels of moisture, odors, gases, dust, and other air pollutants. To keep the air safe indoors, fresh outdoor air is needed to dilute these indoor pollutants.
Meanwhile, Harvard has found that ventilation is a crucial part of how viruses and bacteria spread within indoor environments. Recirculating air in buildings such as your home can lead to a higher risk of infection during outbreaks. Even minimum ventilation can cut influenza transmission as much as having 50 to 60 percent of the people in the building vaccinated.

Utilizing the clean air that already exists outside while saving up to 50 to 90 percent on your A/C related costs rather than manufacturing clean air at a much higher cost could greatly reduce the spread of illness.
