Better HVAC filtration results in better health

Better HVAC filtration results in better health

I’m still not sure how I got this far into my adult life without knowing just how essential good indoor air quality is to our health and well being.

I mean, I’m almost in my 40’s and have owned my house for nearly a decade.

When we bought this house, I had to replace the HVAC equipment as one of the first things. My wife and I spent a lot of time with the HVAC professionals learning about just what we wanted when it came to our heating and cooling needs. The HVAC company was great with that. We met at the HVAC company a few times and then the HVAC contractor actually met us at the house as well. And in all that time with HVAC professionals, I didn’t ask or understand how essential indoor air quality is. I suppose that has something to do with the fact that, in my mind, air pollution is outside and not inside. Of course, that’s not true at all as I would come to understand. There are so many synthetics in our homes that are releasing chemicals. Then you throw in pets and other airborne contaminants to make a really potentially bad indoor air quality situation at home. Thankfully, once I was made aware of this, I was able to better the indoor air quality with a fairly simple fix. The only air filters I have ever used were the cheapest I could find. Again, I just didn’t know any better. But those cheap air filters are designed to protect the health of the HVAC equipment not our health. Yet, it was so easy to switch to the HEPA filter and improve the indoor air quality of our home.
