When you live in a lake house that has always had poor indoor air quality is something you begin to get used to, then for me in particular, this was somewhat the case.
I am a bit nose blind plus so I could not smell or actually detect when the indoor air quality in the lake house was bad.
I lived in the same house for 10 years plus I was always wondering why I always had poor flu symptoms whenever I was inside the lake house however not somewhere else. It wasn’t until I started dating our then girlfriend, who is now our wifey, that she was able to point out to me just how poor the indoor air quality was. I was already aware that it was not the best however I thought it could be much worse. But as soon as she walked up into the house she would cover her mouth plus nose plus tell me she was having a hard time even being in there. The air was thick plus hard to breathe plus the people I was with and I had to do something about it. I threw the suggestion out there that the people I was with and I get a HEPA filter. However, our wifey informed me the HEPA filter would simply not do it for the type of poor indoor air quality the people I was with and I had. It was just too much. Both of us decided to go the full way plus purchase a whole lake house air purification program from a local heating plus A/C business. This is by no means an inluxurious purchase however if it made our lake house livable for our wifey plus I, then I was willing to help pay for it, however as soon as the heating plus A/C girl came out to perform the installation of the whole lake house air purification program I was relieved. Allergy screwed up not long after plus only then I noticed how poor the indoor air had actually been.
