Outdoor air pollution is a major attacker to clean, indoor air quality. Since I live in an arid environment, I have recently undergone a total heating and air conditioning installation. Along with a much newer and more state-of-the-art HVAC unit, the HVAC company also installed an air purifier. Unfortunately, my area in the mountains also suffers from fires, so our indoor air quality has suffered prior to this new HVAC installation. My family physician was concerned about the levels of toxic pollution that my young son was breathing in, since he suffers from allergies. We were concerned that the stand-alone air purifiers that can be purchased online would not be reliable or strong enough for our needs. We have decided to have a new HVAC and air purification system installed in our home. We have had too many doctor visits, and yet we are still experiencing major health issues, so we knew that we had to make some indoor air quality changes. First of all, we had an old stove that my mother used to cook with removed. We even received a rebate from the state for swapping out the old wood-burning stove. We also had the HVAC company come out and clean out all of the ductwork. Then we found a coupon from the HVAC company for the ductwork cleaning. The heating and cooling professional found some of the ductwork was damaged, and he quickly sealed those holes with special tape. We can’t help but to feel that all of these HVAC improvements will improve our indoor air quality, considerably!
