Moving out west, where the air quality is so dry

The southwestern section of the country is a place of unmatched beauty.

  • I am an artist, one who is slowly building a reputation for high quality landscapes painted with oil paints on canvas.

Over the years I amassed enough cash to allow me to live out one of my dreams. I wanted to move out to the sandy desert of the southwest and live in a cabin or bungalow, where I could be a hermit and focus entirely on my art. The weather here is hot, but dry, which is a welcome change! What is not as welcome is the poor air quality, because the complete absence of humidity has been wreaking havoc on my respiratory system. I immediately had to invest in a new humidifier for my cabin, but even that wasn’t enough. I consulted an online air quality expert, who was also a certified HVAC tech, and asked for some pointers. I love my new house, and the beauty of the surrounding land, so I don’t want it ruined because of poor air quality. The expert said that the easiest solution would be to buy another, much bigger, humidifier for the cabin. Obviously I needed an excess of moisture in the air, so adding more humidifiers would be the quickest fix. He also gave me an idea about setting up a buffer zone in the front hall of my house, as an extra layer of defense for my indoor air quality. I am committed to making my new home work, so I will follow all the advice the HVAC tech gave me and hope that it works.
