Something that my wife started complaining about was the fact that the basement was always too humid and the air quality was bad. She would always be doing laundry in the basement, and the smells and poor air quality just became too much for her. Eventually she told me that she was no longer going to do any laundry in those conditions. This spurred me into action, and so I called up the HVAC company to see what could be done about the issue with our basement. I ended up getting some pretty good suggestions for what to do. They said it would be a smart move to get a dehumidifier/humidifier combo unit to get the humidity levels under control. They also said that a good air purification system would improve the smells of the basement a great deal. Not only that, but an air purification system would improve the air quality in the entire household. I sure did love the sound of that. They also said it wouldn’t hurt to upgrade to HEPA air filters since they pull out 99.9% of contaminants from the air. So I decided to invest the money to get these HVAC upgrades. The dehumidifier/humidifier combo unit is great and honestly the basement has never been more comfortable without it being so humid all the time. The air purification system works wonders with the smells and also the air quality is wonderful just like they said it would be. The HEPA air filters are definitely the icing on the cake as they improve the air quality even more and I feel like it’s so much easier to breathe in our home!
