I’ve been buying way more air filters than normal lately because the pollen count around here this year has been absolutely awful.
- I hate my allergy symptoms, and I have noticed that if I change the air filters in my HVAC system more often, it really helps with the indoor air quality in my house.
I guess that makes sense because the air filters take out all of the dust, dirt, and pollen from the ventilation system and trap it in the media air filter. If you don’t change your air filters pretty regularly, then you are definitely going to have some issues with your indoor air quality inside your home. Well, I figured all of this out after I did some reading on this HVAC blog that I follow. I started buying these very expensive HEPA air filters, which are supposed to be the very best ones on the market. I was a little bit surprised at how much more expensive the HEPA filters were than the regular cheap air filters that I was used to buying. But then again, the HEPA filters seemed to make a real difference in the indoor air quality in the house, unlike the cheaper version which didn’t really seem to do anything at all. Luckily for me, I happened to run across some coupons for one of our local heating and cooling companies and they were offering twenty percent off of their air filters. I was surprised to see that this included the HEPA filters as well as their cheaper, less useful counterparts.
