Cramped living space forces to improve my indoor air quality

I am a neat freak and find tiny living spaces ideal dwellings.

That is why I don’t mind living in the city’s cramped spaces. However, the more I stay within walking distance of my frequented destination, the more I expose myself to contaminated air. The city is ever busy with humans moving around, construction of some sort going on, and vehicles passing by now and then. It is impossible to get clean air even if you walk into a building with proper AC. My latest house is the most cramped living space I have ever had. Healthwise, I am good, but to keep that up, I had to avoid all airborne pollutants by getting an air purification system. Small dwellings like ours are more prone to holding impure air quality than larger spaces. Even with a dedicated regular home service and air filters changed on time every three months, I cannot let my guard down because traditional filters cannot keep all impurities away. To get proper air purification help, I spoke to an HVAC professional who understands small city dwellings and their need for whole-home air purification systems. But since I do not own the building or determine when services such as duct cleaning take place, I could not install the permanent HVAC equipment. Therefore, I had to settle on a portable HVAC option that is manageable for my space, hence the need for advice from an HVAC technician. Apparently, these air purification appliances are in high demand and costly for renters like us, but that is the cost we have to incur to keep our indoor air quality as per EPA-recommended standards despite having a reliable smart HVAC in place.
