Poor indoor air quality in the lake house

I own a lake house, those are words I never thought I’d say in my life, but, here I was a proud owner of the loveliest 2 bedroom lake house! I came to this area by chance on a solo hiking trip through a forest.

The area wasn’t too bad and there weren’t many wild animals around.

This is why I had chosen to hike alone and not in a group. As I was walking around, I came to this tourist office and struck up a conversation with the forest guard, and she is the one who pointed me in the direction of the house which was on sale at a good price. I knew the area and this would make an amazing holiday home so I bought it and began some minor replacements. I wanted to test the cooling system in the house to see if it was working okay. But, given the remote location, it was 3 afternoons before an AC worker would come and inspect the cooling system. I chose to stay at a beach house near the area as I awaited the inspection. Finally the call came that the AC worker was on her way to check out the cooling system. She arrived an hour later and went straight to work. The AC worker was impressed with the cooling system which needed minor repairs and servicing! Her main problem was with the dirty HVAC ducts, however leaving them as it would affect the air quality in the lake house, so the best thing to do was get them cleaned. True to her word, I did know the air get dusty when the cooling equipment was running so I hired her to clean the duct work.
