So when we got home, we just did what the dentist told us to do and called the Heating, Ventilation & A/C business.
We aren’t the type of people who run to the hospital for the sniffles. Now, that’s not to say that we didn’t freak out any time we felt awful during the last 2 years. We actually took many Covid tests to rule that out. And we’ve been lucky so far to have every test be negative. That said, late last fall, we had chest and sinus infections that we just couldn’t shake. Interestingly enough, the chill hit us just as the Heating, Ventilation & A/C heating started running for much of the day. We would later learn that this timing had much to do with us not being able to shake that cold. We just felt lousy for days. Like our bodies were fighting off something tough. Of course, we took Covid tests and when these were negative, it was really time to go to the hospital. While we were ready to get a prescription, we got Heating, Ventilation and A/C advice. The nurse was pretty particular that the furnace cranking up and dirty ductwork were the reason that illness just kept lingering. Our immune plan was already down from the chilly and was now fighting off airborne contaminants attacking our respiratory system. So when we got home, we just did what the dentist told us to do and called the Heating, Ventilation & A/C business. The ductwork cleaning and ductwork resealing took most of the day but the Heating, Ventilation & A/C professionals were great. Once they were done, we went a step further and replaced the cheap air filter with a HEPA filter. We started to feel great again once the Heating, Ventilation and A/C air ducts were cleaned and resealed.
