Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? Do you have an issue with dust in your home? If you’re using a standard one inch fiberglass filter, you're doing no good for your allergies or your dust.
The fiberglass filters let almost everything through. The next step from fiberglass filter is using paper filters and if you have a one inch slot, you can put a one inch paper filter though there.
That will significantly increase the air filtration compared to a fiberglass filter but may collect enough debris that you find yourself changing them on a monthly basis. If you put in a large mechanical filter, a large, pleated paper filter, you can get cleaning that far exceeds a one inch paper filter and will last for six months to a year.
No matter how much you enjoy the cold weather, you still need a warm house through the season, and keeping a house warm can get costly.
It doesn’t have to be too costly, however! We’ve put together a few tips for lowering your big heating budget from last year to one that’s more manageable.
When it comes to allergies, fall doesn’t get the same reputation spring does. That’s not to say the autumn season does not present it’s own challenges, in fact, the truth is quite the opposite. Fall allergies affect a lot of people, and to make things worse, the cooler temperatures can reduce the effectiveness of your immune system which enhances the effects of allergies.
It’s a warm, sometimes hot September we’re experiencing this year. It may seem odd to bring up the topic of home heating—not to mention a bit uncomfortable even to think about—but hot weather shouldn’t dissuade you from scheduling an important home heating service: regular professional maintenance.
