When my roommate was talking about everybody pitching in for a whole-home air purifier, I was stunned. I didn’t know why any of us would want to invest in something that was built for the house, a place that we would only be living temporarily. He was saying that we would have fantastic air quality and possibly the landlord would subtract some of the expense from the rent. I already knew that because there was no mention about the air quality in the lease, there was no way that we would get a deduction for investing in a whole-home air purifier. And even if the air purifier was portable, who was going to keep it when it was time to leave the home? Instead, I suggested that everybody just buy their own portable air purifier if they wanted to have improved air quality. My roommate said we should at least ask the landlord if he would cover some of the costs for improving the household on our own dime. Everybody agreed and so the landlord was called. The landlord was actually pleased with the idea of installing a whole-home air purifier in the house and he said he would cover half. With that being said, we all agreed to go forward and called the HVAC company. After the new air purification system was installed, I had to admit that the air quality was better than ever and it was a pretty good idea. I just know that when I move out, I’m going to miss that quality air purification system.
