Like most of us, the pandemic situation has made me think constantly of mine and my family’s health.
Of course, like most other people, we are doing whatever we can to avoid the virus or at least stop the spread as much as possible. I’m working from the HVAC comfort of my home. However, my wife has resumed working in her retail position. Her company has gone out of their way to ensure the air filtration for the HVAC is doing all it can to provide the most safe environment. Once I heard about my wife’s situation and the new air filtration for the HVAC, it got me thinking as well. Working from home, which it appears will be a long term situation, means I’m in my home nearly all the time. I really hadn’t given the indoor air quality of our home much thought. The only time I considered it was when the cooking or pet odors hung in the air. But with the pandemic once again surging, I wanted to do all I could to protect and improve our indoor air quality. The HEPA type air filter was my first step. But, I wanted to be even more proactive. So, I have scheduled the HVAC people to install a whole house air purifier. This goes into the air handler of the HVAC and uses high intensity UV light to destroy the DNA of airborne contaminants. Now, I know that our home has the best indoor air quality and the HVAC combo I have in place works actively to mitigate the presence of the virus.
