So I learned something new last week that relates to household maintenance. I knew that the main air vent for heating and cooling systems had an air filter. And I knew that it needed to be replaced. But I had absolutely NO idea that it is supposed to be replaced every 3 months. And truth be told, I never think about the darn thing, anyway, so I can’t even tell you that I remember to change my air filter annually.
This has traditionally been my husband’s domain, and he takes care of it whenever he remembers. That’s good enough for me! But as the mother of two impressionable little girls, I want to set a good example for them and show them that household maintenance tasks are not to be ignored, nor are they to be feared/solely the domain of one person. FilterSnap.com is an air filter subscription service that is helping me take some initiative and complete this important chore in a timely manner.
Take a look at a video I filmed over the weekend to see just how easy it is to replace your air filter. This is seriously a 1 minute chore!
My dear husband requested that I set the record straight about something mentioned in the video. I thought we had NEVER changed the filter in our current home, and while I have never changed it, Tim actually has, though he isn’t sure when he last changed it and can only tell me that it was somewhere between 1 and 2 years ago. But to be fair, the nastiness you saw wasn’t 3 years of accumulation. Still, we clearly aren’t good about remembering to change the filters anywhere near as often as we should. And as a household with 2 cats and with allergy sufferers, we are doing ourselves a tremendous disservice by not staying on top of this.
This is exactly why I love FilterSnap.com. I have filled out the information they need about the size filter we have (it’s easy to find out…just look on your current filter for the dimensions). I don’t have to remember what size I need from here on out…FilterSnap will take care of it. Their prices are competitive with what you will find in the stores, and a new filter will show up on your doorstep every 3 months, and that’s your cue to replace the old one!
FilterSnap offers 3 different grades of air filters so that you can choose the right one for your budget and for your particular household needs. And as for the quality, I really enjoyed reading up on the intention behind the FilterSnap designs. It seems to me that these are high quality products that will rival if not best what you will find in the stores.
So how often do you change the air filters in your home? And have you, yourself, ever attempted the chore? Can you even believe how ridiculously easy it is? Let me encourage you to take a moment to change your filter as part of your spring cleaning. And if you are like me and never think about doing it, go ahead and get signed up for FilterSnap.com so that you don’t ever have to think about it again!
