For a very long time, I was using the air filters that you have to change month in and month out! Once in a blue moon I would completely forget and end up decreasing them after about four straight months and I realized this was not wonderful for the Heating and A/C system, i remember this one time when I was talking to the Heating and A/C repair tech, I was telling him how aggravated I was that the air filters had to be changed every damn month, that’s when he asked myself and others why I didn’t go for the air filters that you can change once every 3 months.
I simply stared at him for a moment, and then asked if he was pulling my leg.
I legitimately didn’t guess that they made air filters that could be changed once every few months! When I finally found these wonderful air filters, I was thankful. I would have more time between air filter swings. I also figured it would be best to set some kind of reminders just so I didn’t forget to change out those air filters every 3 months. I learned that these air filters are higher quality with a great MERV rating, and it seems that’s why they last longer. I do wonder if they can make air filters that last longer, love air filters that could last up to a year? I don’t have any idea how it all works, but I wish I could get an air filter like that. I have heard about washable air filters and I absolutely have considered purchasing something similar to that for my Heating and A/C system.
