Yet, this just makes the odor mix hang in the air only to get continually recycled in the HVAC.
This house just reeked for the longest time. I tried to pretend that it was just my sensitive nose but, there was really no denying it really. It was one of those situations where your sense of smell kind of gets lulled into a certain set of odors. But then, you go to work, come home and get hit smack in the face with that smell combination that lurks in the air of your home. It’s sort of common sense that the house would maintain odors. We have several pets, we cook a lot of fish and the I also blame it on the HVAC. Well, I blame it on the HVAC in an indirect sort of way. Our home is in an area that stays warm nearly year round. Well, it’s nice for 8 months of the year and just brutal hot the other four. However, the HVAC cooling system is running for at least a full six months of the year. That means no windows get opened for that entire time. Plus, we took the added step of sealing our house extremely tight. This was done in an effort to keep as much of the HVAC treated air inside the house. Cooling a house can get expensive so, making sure that the HVAC cool air stays inside is sort of a no brainer. Yet, this just makes the odor mix hang in the air only to get continually recycled in the HVAC. Well, I just got a very good Christmas present in the form of a whole house air purifier. The HVAC guys came out and installed it. The thing has only been running for four hours and I can already tell a difference.
