What's the deal with the air quality?

One of the many different ways that my wife and I have always shared an interest in is DIY projects around the home.

  • While working on projects we are able to not only improve something in the house, but we are also able to spend quality time together and learn how to rely on one another.

While we usually have success when it comes to DIY projects, there are also times when things don’t go as well. A good example of this happened just a few days ago after my wife and I had re-painted the entire living room. We were in love with the color and how it turned out, but ever since we finished the project the air quality in our home has dropped severely. After a few days of trying to figure out why we were having a hard time getting fresh air into our home we ended up learning that the heating and cooling system in our home wasn’t able to bring in a high enough amount of fresh air in order to offset the pollutants in the air from painting and moving furniture around. Fortunately the only thing that we needed to do was open up all of the windows in the house while running the heating and cooling system on its highest setting for a few days and then everything was as good as new. I’m feeling very thankful that we live in modern times where there are online guides written by professionals in the HVAC field so we were able to figure this out on our own, if not we would have spent thousands upon thousands of dollars for someone to do it for us!
