HVAC chores at home getting done more consistently

`I’m doing my best in order to get a bit better when it comes to getting stuff done around the house.

This is something that doesn’t exactly come naturally to me.

And it’s a shame because I sure had the environment from which to learn about being handy when I was a kid. My dad could fix just about anything around the house. Well, he never fooled with the HVAC equipment as he left that stuff to the HVAC professionals. However, he was always on top of the HVAC chores around the house. It was like second nature to him. My dad really didn’t have to even think about stuff like is HVAC responsibilities. He just sort of worked them in as he was doing all the other projects he had going at his house. That’s just not the way that my monthly HVAC chores go around my house. I actually have to set a reminder on my phone in order to remember to change the dang air filter. And even then, it’s not as though I’ve been particularly consistent with any of it. This, is what I’m trying to change. I took a good step in that direction when I called the HVAC company. Signing us up for the HVAC service plan takes that off of me. Now, I don’t have to remember to schedule the HVAC maintenance in the fall and the spring. And, I have remembered to change the air filter for six months in a row. That could be a new record. All I know is that I’m doing my best to do my best when it comes to taking care of my HVAC equipment.

Good to be warm without paying too much for HVAC

I really had no idea what a real winter was all about.

I mean, I wasn’t even close.

Having grown up in the south where the heat pump was all we needed for heating, I had a very idealized version of winter. To me, it was like those Christmas cartoons of my youth. It was all fluffy snow and sledding and stuff. The realities of the temperatures had no bearing on how I perceived a serious, northern winter. Well, that all changed and it was quite a wake up call for me. My wife’s mom lives up here and is getting to the point in her life where she needs more care. The idea of moving south to us was just not up for discussion. So when my wife had the opportunity to take a promotion that would put her less than an hour from her mom, it seemed like a no brainer. As far as I’m concerned, I’m here to support my wife on that. I work from home so I can work anywhere. And living up here is temporary and I’ll get back to my heat pump and all that air conditioning in the summer. Until then, I had to figure out just how to heat the house without spending a wad of money doing it. With the help of some great neighbors, I learned the combination to that lock. It’s all about making sure the house is tight and insulated. With no drafts, one can be quite disciplined with the thermostat setting. This is our third winter coming up and I’ve already scheduled the heating maintenance with the HVAC company.

Air filtration absolutely changes everything

I don’t like to make big sweeping statements because they usually come back to haunt me.

Sometimes, I can certainly overstate something for being just miraculous when in fact, it wasn’t.

That’s why I hesitate a bit when describing how much better our indoor air is thanks to air purification. But, I’ll definitely say this. I love the air inside my house now. And that sure hasn’t been the case for a very long time. What I didn’t realize was that the HVAC company had the answers to my problem all along. For me, the problem starts with the fact that our house smelled bad. I mean it’s just a question of airborne odors. They happen when you have a house full of boys, dogs, a cat and a myriad of other sources. Then throw in the fact that the HVAC equipment simply recycled those odors and you get where I’m coming from. And this doesn’t even begin to get to the health angle of good indoor air quality. That’s a whole other situation that finally convinced my husband on the cost of the whole home air purification system. For me, the pressing problem was the odors. There was nothing I could do to cover them up or get anywhere close to eliminating them. But that’s where the HVAC company and air purification changed my reality. Again, at the risk of carrying on about all of this, air purification just changed my life a bit. I like where I live again and that’s a big deal. I’m very grateful to have a whole home air purification system in my house.

I couldn’t pass on a free washable filter

I saw an HVAC ad recently in the newspaper that said you would get a free washable filter when you purchased a UV air purification system.

The washable filter had a high MERV rating for excellent air quality and the UV air purification killed bacteria and viruses. I thought it sounded great so I called these people up. The air purification system seemed to be overpriced, but I did admit that I wanted to try that washable filter. They said it was guaranteed to last for one year which seemed great. Of course, you have to make sure to clean the air filter each month if you don’t want it to become clogged up and cause issues with your HVAC equipment. So even though it was a little pricey for the UV air purification system, I went for it. The HVAC professionals who came out did a great job. They tried to tell me about the HVAC service plan I could sign up for, but I wasn’t interested in that. I just wanted to have amazing air quality in my home and I wanted to see how well the washable filter worked. It actually has been doing great so far and it wasn’t hard to wash it the first time. I bet this thing will last me a good 2 years or so because it is well made and I love how easy it is to clean. I thought it would be much more challenging but not at all. The UV air purification system has been working great as well, and I learned that with the help of this system, it makes it so my washable filter doesn’t become nearly as dirty.

Everybody is going for UV air purification systems now

These guys did a remarkable job and I made sure the air purification system had UV light so that all those nasty germs would be destroyed in my home

I was the happiest guy in college because my parents got me a UV air purifier for the dorms. The air quality I shared with my roommate was incredible and everybody wanted to hang out with us. We got a lot of attention but you also felt safe because the UV light was working to kill dangerous contagions, bacteria, and mold spores. I mean what more could you want in an air purifier? When I finally got it going with my career after college, I ended up buying a nice property with a fireplace, a decent HVAC, and plenty of land. I was just living a little ways outside of the city where I had to work for my business, but I didn’t mind the short commute to and from work. Well, something that the house I bought was lacking was air purification. I used HEPA filters for the HVAC system, but I also decided to call a local HVAC company so they could set up whole home air purification in my place. These guys did a remarkable job and I made sure the air purification system had UV light so that all those nasty germs would be destroyed in my home. It’s crazy because I did this all before the pandemic came around and everybody still wants to come to my place all the time. Of course not during the lockdowns, but now I have people coming to hang out all the time and we always have the most enjoyable times. Also, I inspired all my family and friends to invest in quality UV air purification systems.
