We all have an admiration for Musk and his ability to garner an audience who will support him to make some pretty crazy ideas into a reality. True entrepreneurship. We won’t fault him for that ever.
However, in conversation on Twitter – which seems to be Tesla’s version of PR Newswire – Musk made a claim that Tesla is going to start to explore a whole-house HEPA filter/Air Purifier HVAC solution. Now to make it clear – there is no definitive answer to whether or not this will actually come to fruition, but, when it comes to Tesla it is definitely not out of the question.
And it seemed to garner a decent amount of attention as he’s has been talking about it for years now, even two years ago on the Joe Rogan Podcast. Now if you want to learn more about air purifiers for your home and alternatives here’s a useful article that explains most of the best options and associated costs here.
One thing to remember is that there are companies that are experts when it comes to the HVAC space. But if we have learned anything about Tesla – their brand on a product can make it sell.
If you are interested in efficient HVAC operations for your home, smart thermostats like Ecobee and Google Nest already do most, if not all, the “necessary” optimization to reduce your energy draw. Connecting it to your car won’t be necessary. If you had the capital to invest in a heat pump and geographically makes sense for your home, companies like Dandelion Energy can help.
