When I was young, I was pretty careless.
I ate whatever I wanted, I didn’t keep up with the house, and I definitely didn’t keep up with the HVAC system.
I owned a pretty shabby house over the years. People told me I should do something about the air quality, but I didn’t care enough to spend money on things that were actually important. I just wanted to have fun in life and have parties, and I threw plenty of parties at the house. Eventually, my HVAC system ended up breaking down and I got a brutal wake up call from the HVAC professional. He explained that what I was doing with my HVAC system was unacceptable. He explained the importance of having good air quality and keeping the HVAC in good shape. He said the poor air quality in my house was the worst he had ever experienced. He said I needed to change the air filters regularly at least every other month and I needed to use better quality air filters. I was using the fiberglass air filters, but I thought any old air filter was fine. I was happy when I just had my HVAC system fixed and I didn’t have to be hassled any longer. I changed the air filters on time for a short while but then I stopped changing them as I should. The air quality got bad again and I started having breathing issues. I think my breathing troubles are because of the poor air quality in my home, and I finally got back into the habit of making sure to have great air quality. Unfortunately, my health is poor and I only have myself to blame for that.
