Upgraded the air filtration for better indoor air quality

I like when there are easy solutions to otherwise complex issues.

This doesn’t happen to often for me.

So when it happens, I like to celebrate that fact. Normally, when I run into a household obstacle or situation, it ends up costing me a bunch of money. The problem with that is the fact that I don’t exactly have a bunch of money. I do well to pay the mortgage and keep the heating and cooling on in the house. So when it was brought to my attention that we should do something about the indoor air quality of our home, I was skeptical. My wife did some research on immune health during the pandemic to help us beef up our immune response. Well, it turns out that one of the main contributing factors to a weakened immune system is poor indoor air quality. Again, I wasn’t so sure so I looked it up myself. And there is was in black and white. The EPA listed poor indoor air quality as one of the top five environmental hazards we face in this country. That was news to me. I guess I just didn’t associate poor air quality with the inside of my home. So we looked into what we could do to make a difference in the indoor air quality of our home. To my joyful surprise, we could make an immediate and significant change to our indoor air quality for a few extra dollars per month. All we had to do was upgrade the HVAC air filter to a HEPA filter. That’s because a HEPA filter traps and removes over 99 percent of all airborne contaminants.
