Pandemic concerns lead to better indoor air

This virus is just so sinister.

Every time we think we might have this thing a bit more dialed in, it mutates and acts differently.

There is no doubt in my mind that it will be around until there is a vaccine. So, while I’m not to excited about it, I have been spending a great deal more time inside the security of my HVAC controlled home. My health is not terrible but, it’s not the greatest either. My best bet to get through this deal is to avoid crowds, make sure I’m washing my hands and stay home. I love the HVAC comfort of my home but, I am still trying to get outside to green spaces for some fresh air. That got me to thinking about the quality of the air in my home. I had read that the indoor air quality has a direct impact on your overall and immune health. This gave me pause because, other than getting outside a bit, I am spending all my time inside the HVAC. I was further shocked to find that the EPA rates poor indoor air quality as the fourth worst environmental hazard. This got me to check out what I could do to improve the air quality in my home. The first step for me was to get rid of my cheap HVAC air filters. I replaced them with HEPA type air filters. These do a phenomenal job of catching over 99 percent of airborne contaminants that chip away at immune health. It didn’t take long to notice the difference either.
