My husband and I have 6 kids between us so when this Covid bug hit life did not get easier for us.
My husband’s job transitioned to a work from home job, all the kids had to study from home, and I still had to go in to work.
I am an electrician so I am constantly in other peoples’ homes. I feared I would take the virus home one day and make everyone sick. Of course, we took as many precautions as we could. To start with, we got several HEPA filters for the home at the same time we were buying computers for the kids. After months passed, and this virus didn’t seem to be going anywhere, we decided to go ahead and get an air purification system for the house. It just seemed easier than remembering to clean the HEPA filters every few weeks. Our HVAC supplier came in and installed the air purification system on our existing HVAC unit. It only took a few hours for them to do this. Now, every particle of air that goes into our intake vent is purified. First, it goes through a very strong MERV filter. Then, it is blasted with UV light before exiting out of the vents. This means that our HVAC system is not working as one big purification system. I feel better knowing that, instead of spreading germs, our HVAC system is working hard to capture and kill the germs. Oh, and of course I got vaccinated myself as soon as I could. My husband did too.
