It only needs annual upkeep and has made a noticeable improvement in the cleanliness, freshness and smell of the home
While I was pregnant with my first child, I was especially sensitive to smells. The smell of household cleaners, specific foods and perfumes were problematic, causing nausea and headaches. I noticed that cooking odors spread throughout the house and took a long time to dissipate. It got me concerned with indoor air quality. I realized that these smells were being transported by the ductwork. I assumed that any allergens inside the furnace, air conditioner or ducts were getting introduced into our breathing air every time the heating or cooling system operated. I worried about the risk of health problems for an infant with an immature immune system. I read a lot of articles online and then got in touch with a local HVAC contractor to schedule air quality testing and discuss options. The technician performed a variety of tests to identify the type and level of issues with our indoor air quality. I learned that our biggest problem was airborne particulates such as dust, dander and lint. I scheduled ductwork cleaning and a thorough service for the furnace and air conditioner. I invested into a media air cleaner that traps pollutants too small for the eye to see. It captures mold spores, smoke particles and harmful VOCs. It also helps with unpleasant odors and hazardous pathogens. The media air filter makes very little noise and runs 24/7. It only needs annual upkeep and has made a noticeable improvement in the cleanliness, freshness and smell of the home. Because of it, I felt much more confident bringing my new baby home from the hospital.
