When my wife let me know we were having a baby, I was scared because I didn’t know how to be a parent.
I didn’t know if I was going to be a good father or what, but my wife assured me that I would do just fine. I already started talking about things we needed to do to get ready for the baby. I was really freaking out like everything had to be done immediately. I was talking about things air quality related first. I knew the air quality was okay because we used high quality air filters, but I didn’t think that was enough. I was saying how we need a powerful air purification system, a humidifier, HEPA air filters and perhaps even a new HVAC system altogether. I didn’t want to think about the hassle of trying to get a new HVAC system installed when the old one failed on us, especially with a crying baby. I didn’t want our baby to be uncomfortable in the slightest, so I knew we had to be ready. My wife thought I was nuts when I actually had a new HVAC system installed along with a UV air purification system. She thought the UV air purification system was great, but she thought the new HVAC might have been overkill. The old HVAC system was 12 years old, so I figured it was on its last leg, but she thought it would be fine until at least 15 years. Well, I didn’t want to take the chance and so I had a new HVAC unit installed. I’m not disappointed either because that HVAC has been keeping us comfortable and the energy bills are lower. Our baby has been healthy too, and I think the UV air purification system helps a lot in that regard.
