Ever since I was a kid, my Dad loathed Spring! As pretty much everyone else was celebrating the end of the long Winter months, she was dreading what was to come, but spring meant lots of pollen in the air which was mom’s worst scenario.
Since she was young, she suffered from dire dust irritations… Her doctor constantly said she’d guess better as an adult; But, that never happened, and it was the same scenario each year when the world came alive and the snow melted, then Dad would have to rely on allergy medication to keep the symptoms low… But there was no way to ensure she never had the sniffles. Her relief came when I went to HVAC school and got to learn all about UV air purifiers! Where we lived, there was an AC business. I was surprised that in the 10 years or so of servicing and repairing units in our home, none of the HVAC workers had told Dad about air purification units, but these units were excellent in keeping pollen, dust and other allergy triggers out of the house. Though Dad couldn’t control the conditions outside the house, she’d finally find relief indoors. I went to the city at 1 time to find an HVAC vendor who sold whole-home air purification units. This kind lady was sympathetic to my plight when I told her Dad had serious dust irritations. She even sent her AC expert to come to the house, install the component and explain how to use it effectively. Since I was still in school, I wasn’t experienced in installation, although I was enthusiastic to learn as much as I could from the AC expert. She even went ahead to offer myself and others an internship position when I wasn’t busy at school.
