PAUSA operates with a high efficiency furnace unit equipped with an air filtration system that allows for clean and comfortable air flow. Our Trion Air Bear filter MERV13 captures and holds pollutants inside the filter, allowing air to flow freely through the system. Highly-Efficient, 100% electrostatically - charged synthetic material features extended surface pleats that have a high dirt-holding capacity that effectively removes pollen, mold, spores, viruses and bacteria.

In addition, we will use lemon, cinnamon and eucalyptus essential oils (in the form of drops in the filter). 

Eucalyptus kills fungus and guards against bacteria, while cinnamon and lemon prevent viruses from spreading. Might want to try at home! Furnace fan (for constant air flow) and ceiling fan (blowing air up) will be running constantly while the space is open to the public.
