My mom and dad had always had an air purification system in their heating and air conditioning.
Mom said that the air purification system was important for good air quality.
I guess I thought that if mom and dad had something, I assumed everyone had it. I was the reverse of keeping up with the Joneses. We were the Jones and everyone was trying to keep up with us. When I got my own apartment, I had a small HVAC system in the apartment. I had Zone Control, and I thought I had the best apartment ever. The only thing that upset me was how my allergies were acting up when I was in the apartment. I didn’t like how bad I felt, and I soon wanted to break my lease. My mom asked what was so bad about the apartment. I told her about the air purification system not working. Mom smiled and told me that not everyone had air purifiers in their homes. Since I was in an apartment, they most likely didn’t have an air purifier. I thought this was silly since I had to have an air purifier if I had an HVAC system. That’s when dad told me that air purifiers were an add-on and few people had an air purification system in their HVAC system. I felt like someone had just slapped me upside the head for being so stupid. I went to town and bought a portable air purifier for the apartment. It didn’t work as well as the whole home air purifier we had at home, but my allergies weren’t nearly as bad now.
