Just an HVAC filter change can make a difference in your health
The plan certainly made a hard right turn this year with all of the fallout from the pandemic. My schedule which I worked to perfect for years was simply shredded. There was no more grabbing the great coffee and a treat for the commute to work. That office with the customizable HVAC was gone. My kids were learning from home as I tried to find a suitable place to work. That routine that I subconsciously depended on was simply gone in a flash. And honestly, I don’t think it will ever come back. At least not the way it was. I’m even hearing talk that the company may just switch to working remotely. That means I could end up at home working in the HVAC for at least 3 or 4 days a week. It really makes you take stock in how utterly fragile all our live truly are. However, instead of being all bitter about all of this, I’ve rolled with it. Life has to come with some amount of flexibility or change will roll right over you. So, I did find a place to make my office and I learned more about being an attentive husband and father while at home all of these months. Perhaps there will be some positives that come out of this pandemic. I sure hope so. One change that will stay is the quality indoor air. At the beginning of all this, I learned that quality indoor air was key to a good immune response. Of course, I ordered some HEPA filters to replace the cheap paper HVAC air filters I had always used. That change has been a very positive one as we have the best indoor air we’ve ever experienced in this house.
