During the months of November and December, I end up having to change the air filter in my HVAC system pretty often. I know that it’s because I burn so many candles during those months, but I can’t seem to stop myself for some reason. My husband usually gets annoyed with me because he says that he has to spend too much money on air filters during the winter months. He says that the candle soot and smoke probably is not good for the indoor air quality in our house and I know that he is probably right about that. I just can’t help it, though. I know that having candles burning constantly inside of the house can’t really be a good thing for the air quality in the house, but they just smell so good! I think that I might actually be addicted to the smells of the holidays. I love the candles that smell like sugar cookies or pine forests, but my favorite one of all is the one that smells like pumpkin pie. My husband says that it would be much better for the air quality in our house if I would just actually make some pumpkin pies instead of burning those candles all the time, but I don’t listen to him. I am actually thinking of having the duct work professionally cleaned in the house once the holidays are over, because I do know that burning candles all the time really isn’t good for the ductwork or the ventilation system in the house. I probably should have it cleaned professionally once we are done with the holidays.
