Airborne Viruses Can Live in the Air for Hours.
Life is happier when you breathe easier. Your house feels cleaner. Your teeth are straighter. You look prettier in the mirror. You even sing better. Air purifiers can help.
Indoor pollutants can lead to minor health issues such as sore throats and dry eyes to more major ones such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and respiratory disease, including asthma. Or a major Covid-19 hospital trip. Remember, standard furnace filters do not work on two-thirds of indoor air contaminants.
Even if you don't suffer from congestion, headaches, coughing or watery eyes, you can choose to breathe cleaner air and help your immune system. Give the gift of cleaner indoor air to yourself and family with one of the best air purifiers!

Improve your immune system.
Dry winter air creates comfort issues and health problems. Chapped, lips. cracked mucus membranes, bloody noses, sore throats, and static shocks come from dry air. More importantly, dry indoor air increases the transmission rate of airborne cold, flu and COVID-19 viruses.
A whole-home humidifier reduces the transmission rate of airborne viruses by adding moisture back into your home's air. Keeping the humidity in your home between 30-60% will help reduce the negative effects of dry indoor air. A heated home without a humidifier can have 20% Relative Humidity (RH) indicates the amount of water vapor (percent) that's actually in the air compared to the maximum amount that the air could hold under the same conditions. The warmer the air, the more moisture it can hold. See Aprilaire humidifier.
Humidifier maintenance is valuable.
According to the Mayo Clinic, proper humidity helps skin problems as well as symptoms associated with asthma, allergies, and other breathing problems. But humidifiers can make you sick if they are not properly maintained, or if your home’s humidity level is high.
We clean parts, clean the water reservoir, check for clogged drain, check water panel filter, test humidistat.
Cleaning and maintaining your furnace and whole house humidifier improves your immune system, adds comfort and lowers heating bills up to 4% for every degree lower you set the thermostat. Contact PDM today for free whole home humidifier advice. Call (815) 726-6264.
Dirt, dust is a mix of hair, skin cells, clothing fibers, bacteria, dust mites, dead bugs, soil particles, pollen, and microscopic specks of plastic and more. A media air cleaner with a 4" or 5" air filter offers more surface air to trap contaminants and can last for 6-12 months. This quiet, low maintenance air filter creates healthy air.

Q: How effective are filters at blocking the virus?
A: Filters with a MERV rating of 11 or higher help block the virus. Researchers at the Illinois Institute of Technology looked at airborne virus and bacteria movement in a home's heating and cooling system. MERV 8 filtration was no different than no filter in removing viral matter. MERV 11 and MERV 16 (similar to HEPA) removed 85% and 95% of viral matter, respectively. Contact PDM today for free advice.

You clean and maintain your furnace-ac system, but have you ever cleaned your air ducts? Any odors in the duct? Open a vent and use a wet paper towel to see how dirty your duct is. If you find dirty ducts, you're breathing a hodgepodge of contaminants that circulates in the air. PDM can scrub your ducts clean and save you $100.
