I know we all want to save money. I love saving money. I love walking into my favorite store to discover they are having a huge, storewide sale. I love getting an email from a website that I frequently visit with a special promo code. And, I especially love advice on how to save money and get more “bang for my buck”.
So, I’m sure you’re saying, “Yes, I love these things too. Who doesn’t? But how do air filters help save me money?” Well, hold on. I’m about to tell you.

It’s a big world out there, with different climates and different ways of approaching those climates. Having lived in Southern Alabama all my life, I know the joy of that wonderful man-made comfort called the air conditioner.

Different regions of the world have different techniques for heating and cooling. Just as air conditioning is important for Southeast United States, the climate of a region plays a big role in the different choices for heating/cooling methods.

So what can you do?
Well, for starters, if you keep more than one pet in the house, especially dogs or cats, you may want to consider trying a carbon air filter. They come in a variety of sizes, and can be made to fit in most HVAC units and air...

We all know that person that is allergic to almost everything. This person can hardly step outside his front door before he’s attacked by all kinds of contaminants that make him sneeze or make his eyes water. When this happens, all he has to do is go to the doctor and tell the doctor what’s going on with him.
“Well, doc, every time I go outside during the Spring to play disc golf with my friends, my eyes start to water and I can’t even enjoy myself.”
At which point the doctor will undoubtedly tell him that he has allergies and prescribe him some...
