For a long time my fiance and I have been using the same outdated cheap air filters that my nice friend and I have always used.
The reason is because it was the cheapest, and my nice friend and I would save money.
My nice friend and I wondered if we were really saving money though. I couldn’t help but wonder whether that was true, and sure, maybe in the short term my nice friend and I are saving money, however considering how often my fiance and I have to call an air conditioning company to send out one of their professional air conditioning servicemen for HVAC repair, I’m not so sure if my nice friend and I are saving money in the long term. When my fiance told me to pick up some new air filters on the way back to our household from work, I stopped by the HVAC store. I basically had a few errands to do anyways, and the cooling company was right on the way. I went inside and grabbed the correct cheap air filters, however something made me stop and look at the other HVAC filters for once. They had a surprising amount of variety and types of air filters, and all kinds of crazy sizes as well. I noticed they had HEPA air filters, which were definitely one of the best types of air filters there were. I compared the HEPA air filters to the cheaper generic filters I was originally planning on getting, and I found myself becoming more and more impressed with the new HEPA filters. Of course, after that my nice friend and I noticed they had washable air filters as well, and I was having such a taxing time trying to decide! Washable air filters would be a suitable way to save money, and prevent waste. In the end, I decided to buy just one HEPA filter and one washable filter to give them both a try.
