Having been raised separate from any sort of new HVAC, I don’t take the heating & cooling system in our apartment for granted.
The home did have a wood stove for heat & we had fans to get through the hotter periods of the summer.
These normally did the trick & it’s not that we were left wanting. Where I live now, it’s a completely peculiar story. Growing up in a region where the Wintertide was the strenuous weather didn’t honestly prepare me for the HVAC cooling I would face. The temperatures consistently cooled off at evening when I was growing up. The cool evening air was so refreshing that there were evenings in the summer time when I honestly had to close the windows. That is really not the case now. Our HVAC runs quite a bit throughout the summer time in an effort to beat back the heat. This section experiences a level of heat where the HVAC is on much of the year. However, we also have to keep the home honestly sealed up in order to get the most efficiency from the HVAC cooling. That means almost zero fresh air. That’s not so good for the indoor air quality. As a result, I have to get proactive when it comes to maintaining superb indoor air quality. My main system of doing so is to use a HEPA type HVAC air filter. It removes a mind blowing 99.9 percent of hazardous airborne contaminants. But trust me, it’s so vital to making sure that our indoor air is healthy & breathable.
