One day when my sister was over to visit with her kids, we had a pretty nice visit.
Then when my sister was in the bathroom, my niece started telling me how amazing the air quality was in my house.
She said it felt good to be able to breathe without having to sneeze. I told her that the air quality was good because we used quality air filters and changed them regularly. I asked if her mother changed the air filters and she said she never saw her do that. She did admit that she saw her father change the air filter a few times, but she didn’t know how often he did that. She thought about it and said he probably didn’t change them very often because it was very dusty in the house. Before her mother came back, she told me to please not tell her that she told me about that because she might get upset. I promised I wouldn’t tell her how I found out, but I wanted to go see for myself. I tried to be smooth about it and went to visit my sister the next day. I actually went to the hardware store to get a few air filters that were good quality. They were the right size for my sister’s HVAC for sure. When I got to my sister’s place, I just told her that I saw a sale on air filters and got a bunch of extra, so I wanted to give my sister some. She thanked me and we went to install the new air filter. The old air filter was filthy, so it’s a good thing we were able to get it changed.
