This cost me a bit more but I think I can spring for a few bucks extra a month in order to have quality indoor air.
I love my house but I could use a little time away. Having spent the past year inside the air conditioning of my home with little choice to go anywhere, I’m ready for some distance. And when the offices finally opened back up, I was raring to get back to my desk. And it wasn’t just because of the zone controlled HVAC in our offices. For sure, that is so much better and more comfortable than working in the air conditioning of home. But it was also nice to dress professionally again and gather with my colleagues. As big a pain as some of them can be, it’s more fun and productive when we are physically working together. But I have to say that just a full couple of days away from my house revealed an ugly truth. The indoor air quality in my home left something to be desired. In lieu of a full on air purifier, I took a different approach. It was still an immediate and proactive approach nonetheless. I tossed the cheap, paper HVAC air filters and replaced them with a HEPA air filters. This cost me a bit more but I think I can spring for a few bucks extra a month in order to have quality indoor air. And I noticed the difference in the air as quickly as just a few days. I’m breathing better and I notice that my ongoing sinus issue sort of just went away after a few weeks. So going with HEPA filter is for sure worth every penny.
