My wife and I have dealt with the indoor air quality in our house the best way we knew how.
- Both of us understand how important good indoor air quality is to a person’s health and well being.
In fact, the EPA has stated that poor indoor air quality was the 4th worst environmental hazard most of us face. That’s a shocking statistic. I always thought that breathing the air from the HVAC was automatically cleaner than outside. That is not always the case. We started with air purification when we moved into this house. The new HVAC equipment came with the old, paper HVAC air filters. These are air filters that are designed to take care of the health of the HVAC equipment. They aren’t designed to protect or improve the indoor air quality. So our initial move was to replace the old air filters with HEPA filters. The HEPA filter removes over 99 percent of airborne contaminants and greatly enhances the indoor air quality. However, we still faced a problem of odorous indoor air. And try as we might, we simply couldn’t cure it. We tried all the sprays, plug ins and even candles but nothing really worked. They didn’t work because they were simply masking the problem. So we called the HVAC company to get to the root of the problem. They installed a whole home air purification system. We have been awestruck by how totally effective it has been. Our air is not only the cleanest it could be but it smells so crisp and fresh. Finally, we are getting the indoor air quality we need with the fresh smelling air that we want.
