Okay, so the last two years of pandemic has made me more than aware of any sort of change when it comes to my health.
Just like everybody else in the country, I hid inside the air conditioning of my home to avoid coming down with that virus.
I have some genetic health issues that really put me at a much higher risk. Before they were vaccinations, there was nothing I could do but stay inside the air conditioning in my home. My bosses were really cool about understanding that being inside the commercial HVAC of the office was not a great idea. So they kept me at home inside my own air conditioning for almost 2 years. Finally, I got back to that commercial HVAC of the office and a new normal I’m still coming to grips with. Then all the sudden I came down with a pretty bad chest cold. Of course I immediately got tested but thankfully it wasn’t covid. Still the respiratory issues stayed with me for weeks. Finally, I went to the doctor. I was expecting a prescription but got a suggestion of HVAC variety instead. The doctor wanted me to call the HVAC company and have the ductwork cleaning and ductwork resealing done. Once that was completed, I was all set to upgrade HVAC air filter to a HEPA filter. That thing removes more than 99 percent of airborne contaminants. Sure enough once I did all that I had no more problems with that chest cold. Ductwork cleaning by the HVAC professionals is going on the calendar from now on.
