I live in a small house right next to a very dusty street and my house is always dusty despite me not opening the windows throughout the day.
- A mile down the road is a papermill factory that is always releasing some black smoke that I assume is toxic.
I used to think that the coolness provided by the heat pump was enough to keep the air within my house clean enough to breathe until I started suffering from respiratory issues. A friend of mine who worked at the local business suggested that I get an air purification system to help improve indoor air quality. This was a good idea but the only issue was that I did not have the funds to get the new system. I visited a certain supplier and explained my predicament. The kind salesman introduced me to a financial plan provided by the business to enable homeowners to own air quality systems. They had introduced this plan when Covid hit. I only needed to pay for the installation process as well as the labor. The technicians came the following week to install the air purifier. I had purchased one that came with air ducts and so they had to put up the ductwork and proceeded with the duct sealing process. I got a basic dial thermostat that could do the work. The technicians took me through the process of cleaning the washable filters to maintain clean air filters. They also scheduled the first duct cleaning which was to happen 3years after installation. The new heat and AC products played a big role in healing my respiratory issues.
