I undoubtedly love new technology very much, but periodically my expectations completely exceed what is even satisfactory when I buy a new piece of hardware.
My laptop for instance is a hybrid tablet with a collapsible keyboard attached. I was looking at various reviews for months leading up to my final purchase and had myself psyched thinking it would be the most awesome laptop I’ve ever laid my hands on. But the truth is that it’s slow, extremely buggy, and the screen is not very responsive. I was massively disappointed by the ordeal… Then, I went through a similar situation with our heating and cooling machine in our house. I love to keep our indoor air as clean as can be, so when I started to get odors coming from our a/c machine, I was gravely worried. A certain Heating plus A/C professional who was servicing our machine easily proposed that I buy UV lights to put in our air handler. He essentially said the ultraviolet light emitted is so strong that it destroys fungal, bacterial, and viral pathogens on contact. What he failed to convey to me before I made the investment was that only the little bit of air that actually comes within an inch or so of the bulb really gets the full effects from the ultraviolet light. In reality, the most the bulbs often do is merely sanitize the inside of your air handler which stays exposed to the lights non-stop once they are installed. Granted, they absolutely made a difference, but I’m not sure if UV bulbs were the right investment for our purposes. I suppose I need a whole-home air purifier for our residence, recognizably a HEPA style filter to greatly improve the odor indoors.
