On top of that, they can remove things like bacteria and even virus from being suspended in the air
My dad always told me not to sweat the little things. And he would always smile and follow it up with the fact that it’s all little things. He was so right about all of that. Life is just made up of all these moments, all these little things. We string them together to make a big picture in our minds. But in fact, it is all little things. But sometimes a little thing like a change in HVAC equipment can make an enormous difference. That has been the case when it comes to replacing the HVAC filters we’ve been using forever. I was under the wrong impression that those paper air filters that I get at the grocery store we’re actually cleaning the air. I’m pretty good about changing the air filters regularly. So that means I’m changing them once a month and I always see some dirt or dust on them. In my mind, those air filters were actually cleaning our air. That’s really not the case. The cheap, paper air filters for the HVAC are really protecting the HVAC equipment. However, there are air filters that will protect our health. All we had to do was upgrade that one piece of HVAC equipment to a HEPA filter. The HEPA filters remove more than 99 percent of all airborne contaminants. On top of that, they can remove things like bacteria and even virus from being suspended in the air. So no not only is the HEPA filter improving our respiratory function but it’s also helping us mitigate illness.
