When my wife and I were invited to have dinner at my sister’s house, I didn’t think anything could go wrong.
We were honored to have dinner with my sister and her husband.
Well, when we got there, my wife and I started coughing and we could tell that the air quality was not very good. I tried not to say anything for a long time. I figured if we could just make it through the dinner, we would be golden. Of course, my wife was so uncomfortable, I knew that I had to say something. I ended up talking with my sister’s husband and I asked him when was the last time he had the air filter changed and the ductwork system cleaned. He said he changes the air filters roughly every 3 months, but he doesn’t use the expensive air filters. I went with him to the basement and he showed me the air filters he uses. I couldn’t believe it, he was using the air filters that are cheap and need to be changed once every month. It’s no wonder the air quality was bad. I told him it was not a good idea to use those cheap air filters. He asked me if I knew what kind of air filters he should get, and I told him that I would show him. So we went to the store while my wife and my sister were talking. We actually ended up getting some HEPA air filters which are fantastic for improving the air quality. As a matter of fact, you can’t find a better air filter for your HVAC system! It didn’t even take long after we installed the HEPA air filter for the air quality to improve dramatically. Even my sister was delighted with the change! We ended up having a really nice dinner because of the improved air quality.
