Life in a City with Bad Air Quality and no HEPA Filter

I live in a busy area in the city and it’s not only very noisy in the streets, but it’s very smelly from car and bus exhaust.

I don’t think it is too healthy living on a busy corner where the buses when they take off emit so much smoke you’d think there is a fire outside.

I thought it was a nice flat at first but soon realized why the rent was so low, you get what you pay for. It was a three bedroom two bathroom flat in the center of a big city for a very cheap price. The next thing I noticed besides the exhaust was the old oil heater and a/c unit they had in the place. The winters can get very cold and those old air conditioning units don’t function very well so it got really cold in the flat at night, cold enough to where I was wearing my jacket to go to sleep at night. In the summers it was even worse, I would have two fans on me at night blowing even hotter air onto my body. I told my mom that’s how you cook a turkey. It’s so much nicer having a new radiant heater in my bedroom now and a small wall window air conditioning unit in my living room. I am so much more comfortable in the house when the air quality and temperature are good. It’s so important to be happy and comfortable in the house you spend most of your time in. Be good to yourself and have your a/c filters and ducts cleaned too.
