I haven’t actually asked her but I imagine that my wife would still shake her head about how stubborn I was about an HVAC upgrade.
I was just plain dumb when it came to what a difference air purification would make in our lives.
Actually, I’m sort of surprised she doesn’t hammer me daily on that one. Yet, I just wasn’t wild about spending thousands of dollars on a whole home air purification system. Air purification does much more than simply get rid of indoor air problems. What ultimately got me behind the decision to install a whole home air purification system was getting educated. Initially, we started talking about air purification in order to get rid of an indoor air problem. Both my wife and I had tried every sort of solution when it came to making the house smell better. We got a few moments of masking the odors but that was about it. We found out about the whole home air purification system during a dinner party at a friend’s. But the steep cost of that air purifier made me pump the brakes. This sort of air purifier fits inside the HVAC equipment and treats the air as it comes from the HVAC return. I just didn’t want to spend that much money and that’s all there is to it. But after the pandemic hit, I learned just how important indoor air quality is to our health. That made it much more palatable to spend the money on the whole home air purification system. We now have zero indoor air odors and our house smells fantastic. Plus we have the best indoor air quality money can buy.
