It took but an HVAC filter change to change our indoor air

What a difference one little HVAC related change can make.

  • I always find it to be so interesting when one small change leads to such great results.

And changing from a cheap HVAC air filter to a HEPA filter is a fine example of just what I’m talking about. I guess it all sort of starts with some real ignorance on my part. Indoor air quality wasn’t a topic that I either recognized nor knew anything about. I just figured that since the air is inside, it was clean. Air pollution was outside caused by cars and factories. That shows just how limited my knowledge was on indoor air quality. Well, I compounded that misconception with another misconception about HVAC equipment. Part of my all indoor air is clean preconceived ideas came from the fact that I thought the HVAC equipment was cleaning the air as it ran. I mean why else was I changing that air filter every month. Turns out, I was changing that HVAC air filter every month in order to protect the HVAC equipment and not my health. The cheap, paper air filters do nothing but protect the HVAC equipment. They do nothing for the indoor air quality. That’s when I learned about the HEPA filter. This air filter actually traps and removes more than 99 percent of airborne contaminants. And that does clean the air which in turn provides great indoor air quality for me and my family. Now, I have less respiratory junk going on. There are no more lingering colds, coughs or sore throats. Plus, even my allergy symptoms are lessened. And our immune response is also being strengthened as well.
