For some reason, I’ve always had a tough time remembering to change the HVAC air filter.
Just seems like that one HVAC chore was always something that got by me.
The fact that I got the air filter changed at all was sort of surprising to be honest. And that goes back to my total ignorance when it comes to the heating and cooling in my house. Until recently, I just sort of took the heating and cooling in my house for granted. The HVAC equipment was new and it came with the house. I didn’t even have to choose it. That certainly went a long way toward my continuing ignorance when it came to the value of residential HVAC. I think I sort of had a bit of logic in my mind that a dirty HVAC air filter was not a good thing. So I did try to change the air filter. But that’s about as far as my HVAC consideration went. That all changed when I found out about the importance of indoor air quality and what it means to our health. I found out all about this as I was researching for ways to improve my respiratory health. I didn’t realize the indoor air quality had such a bearing on my respiratory help. Thankfully, I didn’t have to do all that much to really improve indoor air quality of my home. All I had to do was upgrade the HVAC air filter. I replaced the cheap paper air filters with a HEPA filter. This type of air filter removes more than 90 percent of contaminants and allergens from the air. Within a few days, the HEPA filter made a significant difference in my indoor air quality.
