Growing up, I never worried about the air quality of my house.
It wasn’t something I heard my parents talk much about nor did I even realize we could have better quality air coming from our air conditioners and furnace system.
Because HVAC technology was not as advanced back then as it is today, my family was unaware of the germs that were floating around from the air of our air conditioner. I remember every spring and every fall my siblings and I would get a little head cold and occasionally even the flu. Now that I am grown and I have a home and family of my own, I decided to do some research on HVAC filters and which one would be best for my cooling system. I found out that there was an air filter I could get for my cooling system that would cleanse the air in my home of germs and bacteria. I ordered the special filter and had an HVAC serviceman come and show me how to properly install the air filter and give me some tips for my cooling system. The serviceman told me I only needed to change this air filter once a year which was great because the filter was expensive. After a month of having the air filter, I was excited to find that my home air quality was much better. When spring came, neither my kids nor my wife got the common cold that we usually would! I will continue to use this air filter in my cooling system and I plan to install it into my furnace as well.
