My roommate is entirely obsessed with making italian food all the time, and she loves to eat it as well as she loves to cook it.
Half of the time, our entire apartment smells like pasta sauce and garlic, and I started noticing that whenever the a/c or the furnace started up, the apartment would smell like my roommate had been cooking again.
Even if she hadn’t been cooking, the overwhelming smell of garlic would come wafting through our air vents all over the apartments. I began getting really sick of smelling italian food through all of the air vents, so I decided to replace our air filters for the HVAC system. I went as well as purchased a current HEPA filter for our HVAC unit, because I heard that HEPA filters could control filtering out particular odors as well as other particles that can affect the indoor air pollen levels. After I put in the HEPA filter, I noticed a small difference when the furnace or the air conditioning system came on. It still smelled like italian food, though! I’ve even yelled at my roommate about it before. I’m sick of our apartment smelling like a pizza restaurant. My roommate told me that there was no way she could quit cooking her homemade pizza and garlic knots as well as she would need to figure something out about our HVAC system. This is when I decided that I was going to have the local heating as well as cooling business come install a small air purification method for our apartment. Ever since we got our UV Light Air purification system, her cooking odor has dissipated as well as I can breathe easy again.
