Choose your battles – air filter isn’t worth divorce

Over time we began to negotiate when it came to the indoor air handling control plan.

When I was growing up I remember my grandpa giving me a lot of important advice. He constantly told me that it was important to be a man of my word, to know how to handle myself in stressful situations, and to show up for the people that I love. He tried to give me the secrets of life all the way down to the most important aspects of a successful relationship. Considering that he and my grandma were married for over 60 years, I think that he knew what he was talking about. That’s why I always try to enact my grandpa’s advice when it comes to living with my wife. One of the things that my grandpa constantly told us was to choose your battles. He told us it was not worth ruining our lives over something simple. And I have learned that that extends all the way to indoor air temperature control. You see, when my wife and I first got married we spent a lot of time complaining about the air temperature control preferences of the other party. We both realized that we were on opposite ends of the temperature spectrum when it came to indoor air quality control. We had strong opinions on air quality and heating and cooling maintenance services, as well. Over time we began to negotiate when it came to the indoor air handling control plan. However, there has been one HVAC issue that I simply had to let go. My wife is obsessed with the idea of purchasing high quality HEPA air filters for the HVAC system. I don’t think that these HEPA filtration devices are necessary, but I also don’t want to fight with her. At this point, I buy her a bulk pack of HEPA filters and thank the stars for my marriage.
