I just had absolutely no idea just how amazing good indoor air quality could actually be.
I didn’t know this fact because I rarely paid much attention to the indoor air or the HVAC equipment for that matter.
I made sure to get the air filter for the heating and cooling equipment changed each month. But that was about it. I left everything else up to the HVAC professionals. We belong to the HVAC service plan so the HVAC technicians take care of all the HVAC maintenance. I was also under the impression that those air filters I was changing were cleaning the air in my home. That was not the case at all. I was using inexpensive air filters that only protected the residential HVAC and didn’t come close to cleaning the air. Again, none of this mattered until we got the dogs. My wife and I are empty nesters and the dogs were something that helped us with that transition. But they are big, long haired canines and they get into stuff outside only to bring that back inside. I knew almost immediately that we’d need the help of HVAC professionals for this problem. They came through with a solution that works inside the residential HVAC. It’s a whole home air purification system and we love it. This thing doesn’t trap and remove indoor air contaminants. This type of air purifier actively cleans the air by destroying allergens and other bad stuff in the air. Thankfully, that means it destroys the bacteria in the air that causes the odor. So as much as the dogs carry in odors, this air purifier wipes out the lingering bacteria suspended in the air. Our house smells better than ever.
