As any homeowner will tell you, the HVAC system is one of the most important parts of the home. Without it, you'll find yourself very cold in the Winters, hot in the Summers, and in many cases have a lower quality of air throughout the home. That's why it's so important that your HVAC system remains in good working condition throughout the year.
Your HVAC air filtration system maybe doing more harm than good. A lot depends on the type of filter you use, and how often you change your air filter. A clean air filter does more than control the dust in your home. Let's take a look at a couple things our Dust Goblin air filter will do for the quality of air in your home.
The vents in your home are supposed to keep clean, temperature-conditioned air circulating through the house. Air flows into the system through your intake register and, ideally, is stripped of all dust and allergens by your air filter.
Sometimes it seems like no matter how often you dust, there is always more dust lurking in your home. Not just the ambient particles that always float in the air, but a constant battle to keep your surfaces and furniture dust-free.
No one likes getting allergies. One day everything is fine, and the next you're coughing or sneezing simply because of something in the air. They limit what you are able to do and they can lower your quality of life. Many of us who suffer from allergies have grown to accept that we can't control the air outside - but inside our homes is a different matter.
Do you find yourself constantly sneezing when you're at home? Or worse, the constantly itchy-nose feeling of not quiet sneezing? While allergies might be the cause, if home is more sneeze-worthy than any other place in the world, then you probably have a dust problem.
It's that time of the year when allergies are at their worst. Everyone is coughing and sneezing! The whole city is more congested than the roads during rush hour traffic!
You've tried everything, but it feels like the allergens made it into your home and have penetrated your air system. If that's your guess, you may not be that far off.
In every home, there's at least one maintenance task you've let go for a little too long. Maybe it's cleaning the leaves and twigs out of your gutters. Or wiping down the inside of your fridge. Or you haven't checked your smoke alarms in a long while. But for most people, one of the most often forgotten home maintenance tasks is to change your HVAC air filter.
Dust is a deeply held archetype in our culture. We all know the line "ashes to ashes and dust to dust," a variation on the King James translation of the Bible used in the English burial service:
"for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."
Energy bills are one of the largest expenses most homes have to deal with. Each month you are spending a large amount of money to keep the temperature in your home at a comfortable level. Wouldn't it be great if this bill was a little lower - allowing you to have more money in your wallet at the end of the month to spend on other things?
