How some simple changes to HVAC improved my health

I’ve never been the sort that was ever really sick.

  • So when the pandemic first started, I wasn’t all that concerned.

But as I saw people I know dropping like flies, I realized that my initial assessment was way off. So like everyone else, I chose to mask up and stay close to the air conditioning of my home. And we just dealt with it. Actually, it was kind of nice that my girls had to come home from their respective colleges. We had like 8 or 9 months inside the air conditioning of our home together that are so very memorable for me. Finally, I was vaccinated as was the rest of my family. But late this fall, I caught a cold that just lingered. I was afraid I had Covid. Yet tests revealed that wasn’t the case. That left me with no choice to go to the doctor. Sitting in the waiting room with the HVAC cooling on after Thanksgiving is one of the many things I hate about going to the doctor. I was just hoping to get this all over with as quickly as possible, get my prescription and get gone. But the doctor surprised me by going another direction. She suggested that I call the HVAC company to come out and do ductwork cleaning as she thought it was the air quality in my house. And after that was done, I was to change to a HEPA filter. I did all of the above and haven’t had an upper respiratory problem since.
