I’m actually glad to have gotten such a serious wake up call about my health.
- I just wish it hadn’t taken a full on global health crisis to get my attention.
But at least there was something positive that came out of the pandemic. When this whole thing started nearly three years ago, I wasn’t so sure that we even needed to leave the commercial HVAC of the office. I kind of thought it was going to be another one of those situations that petered out once the summer got here. But obviously, that wasn’t the case. And I went from being confident that we’d be back inside the zone controlled HVAC of the office to doing all I could to protect myself. Due to the fact that I was so overweight and out of shape, I was in a high-risk group when it came to the effects of covid. So I spent all of my time inside the central air conditioning of my home. I absolutely took every precaution to not get this respiratory illness. But that also got me thinking about my overall health as well as my respiratory health. I knew I had to start getting out of the air conditioning just to get a walk in a few times a day. That was where I started. And then I added dietary changes which were the next step. Over time, I got more and more healthy. That’s when I decided to improve my indoor air quality in order to improve my respiratory health. And it was really simple. I just changed from the cheap, paper air filters and started using HEPA filters. These HVAC air filters remove more than 99 percent of the airborne contaminants from my home.
