Lately in the area that I live we have been having really bad fires.
Everyday you hear horror stories in the news about the fire destroying homes and leaving people with nothing. Thankfully, we have not been in the direct line of fire, but the smoke in the air has been really hard to handle. I feel bad complaining about the smoke when some people have lost everything. However, the smoke is making it hard to breath when we walk outside and lately it has even been bad inside out home. The type of air conditioner system we have brings in air from outside, cools it then puts the cold air out into our home. Well because the outdoor air is filled with smoke, this means our house is starting to fill with smoke. I called our local HVAC company to see if there was anything we could do, but they didn’t have good news for me. They said if I wanted to fix the issue with the smoke in my house, I would have to install a new type of HVAC system that didn’t pull in the outside air. I knew installing a brand new HVAC system was out of the question. So, for now we are just going to have to deal with the smoke and get a purification system that will hopefully help with the smoke issues. I know that our HVAC problems are pale in comparison, but I have to admit they are really causing some issues in my house and with my family.
