Change Your Home Air Filters!

Is it time (or past time) for you to change your home HVAC air filters?   I change mine every 3 months and to keep it easy, I change on these dates: March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31st.

I've seen dirty filters like this many times
Changing your home air filters may be the easiest and least inexpensive home maintenance chore that YOU can do yourself.  I see way too many dirty air filters in homes that I show to prospective home buyers (some have not been changed in years).  Changing your filter regularly will help in keeping clean air in your home AND protect your HVAC equipment.

I highly recommend buying premium filters. An electrostatic air filter with a MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating of 11 or higher better protects your inside living environment and your HVAC equipment. A MERV number is used to help compare filters. The MERV efficiency rating is the filters ability to capture specific micron sized particles. A higher MERV rating indicates a better performing filter. A typcial $1 fiberglass filter will have a MERV rating of 1 or so.

Mel changing out a NordicPure Filter - EASY!

I buy premium NordicPure filters directly from the manufacturer and SAVE.  These are about 1/2 the price of similar filters in home improvement stores and are shipped FREE.  I change two filters each quarter in my home, so I buy 12 each time I have to re-order.
