Filtration system helps when fires are nearby

When the mountains nearby burn there is nothing for us to do but close up the apartment and blast the air conditioning.

My friend and I are not so close to the mountains that we are ever in any real danger but we get a lot of smoke when the mountains burn. Ash falls down from the sky like it is snowing. That ash and smoke get into anything and everything. Thankfully our Heating, Ventilation and A/C system works on a closed system. This means that the air is taken from inside the house, cooled, and returned to the house. Air is not taken from outside. My friend and I also have actually good sealing on all of our doors and windows. But, of course, we still must go in and out throughout the day so some smoke gets in; For that, we have a actually good filtration system built right into our Heating, Ventilation and A/C system. It has UV lighting and more than one filter. It works great. It took us about a year to get everything installed in the apartment like it is, during our first fire season here, we could genuinely see the smoke inside of the house. My asthma was actually terrible and no one could breathe right. My friend and I all started researching ways to keep the smoke out. It was either that or we would have to move. The special filtration system cost quite a bit, so did the sealing, but it was so worth it. It makes our home livable, no matter what is going on outside. I suppose the filtration system helps with our dust irritations, in general, too. I am so thrilled we didn’t have to transport because I actually do care about it here.
