While the winter season brings cooler weather and fun seasonal activities, it also brings something less wanted: the flu and the common cold. It’s important to take precautions to protect you and your family from all of the germs that are common this time of year. One of the ways you can do this is by making sure to keep your air clean during this time. Here are a few ways to keep your air clean this flu season!
Purify the Air with the Reme Halo
One of the most efficient ways to keep your air clean is through an air purification system, like the Reme Halo. Systems like this help to reduce the spread of airborne diseases within your home. This device sits inside your home’s air ducts and will release different molecules that help purify the air within your home. Instead of needing air to pass through it for purification, the Reme Halo is more proactive in that it releases it’s molecules directly into the air. This way the air purifying molecules are distributed throughout all of the air in your home. Using the Reme Halo air purification system is a very effective way to keep the air inside your home clean this flu season!

Ensure an Adequate Temperature
Though not as effective at actually purifying the air, keeping the air at an adequate temperature can help protect against illness. With the drop in outside temperature during this time of year, our immune systems can be more compromised as compared to the warmer months. Because of this, keeping a comfortable temperature with adequate heating can help to provide a little added protection to your family against the flu and common cold.
Humidify the Air Indoors
While heating the air indoors can help our immune systems, it can also dry out the air. Low humidity has been related to a greater chance of germs spreading in the air. In areas of low humidity, the odds of the flu virus being able to survive are increased. So by humidifying, while it does not purify the air itself, it can make it harder for certain germs to spread, or survive, indoors.
