I had my air conditioner unit serviced recently, you know, because it’s 3,000 degrees in the shade in the South during the summer.
My condensation pump needed a good cleaning, but when the technician was rooting around for the source of the problem, he pulled out my filter.
“When was the last time you changed this?” he asked incredulously.
“Six weeks ago,” I defended myself. “It says it’s a 3-month filter!”
I was all self-righteous. After all, three months means three months, right?
Change your filter every month. Every single month, the technician told me, even if you think you’re buying fancy schmancy three-month filters. Those might work in Vermont, he said, but probably not in the Deep South.
Brookshire’s offers the Purafilter 2000, which I can pick up near the cleaning products and light bulbs since I’m there every week anyway.
The Purafilter 2000 reduces airborne allergens, such as dust and sand, pollen, pet dander and mold spores in your home. It’s made in the USA by the same folks who manufacture the Brita water filters and Arm & Hammer products.
Also, they’re priced reasonably to be able to replace them every month to keep your home healthy and clean.
