I swear that for the longest time I have been telling my wife that we need some kind of air purification system. I also told her it would be nice to upgrade the HVAC on top of that. She gave me a crazy look and said we couldn’t afford all of these things. She always pays all the bills and keeps track of the finances, so I have to be careful about bringing up things that are not actually in our budget. I had to make the argument that a new HVAC should be in our budget because a new one would provide us with lower energy bills. She asked me if I was willing to work overtime hours to save up for a new HVAC which got me to shut up real quick. I did end up working as much overtime as I could though. Eventually though, I started having complications with breathing, especially at night. My nasal passages started getting really stuffy and it made it very difficult for me to sleep through the night. This was affecting my performance at work too. I ended up having to see a doctor about my trouble with breathing. He asked me about my HVAC system and if I had an air purification system. I gave my wife a look when he said that. He highly urged me to consider getting an air purification system. When he learned how old our HVAC was, he actually seemed happy to hear that. He said if I had upgraded to a ductless mini split, it would have a built in air purification system. He said I would not only have an easier time breathing with improved air quality, but I would have low energy bills too! Finally, I was able to get the HVAC upgrade and I was able to sleep at night again!
