The EPA estimates Americans spend an average of 90% of their time indoors each day, and due to the spread of Coronavirus, a lot of that time is spent inside our own homes. Having to be cooped up is one thing, but the stagnant inside air could actually be making us more susceptible to airborne viruses, bacteria and allergens. For years many of the world's leading health organizations have cited poor indoor air quality as a culprit for the spread of infectious diseases, including the novel Coronavirus.


Luckily, it's an easy fix. Increasing ventilation with air exchange systems like a whole house fan is a proven way to reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses in homes, schools, and workplaces, and create healthy and more comfortable environment.
