While The Home Depot uses FPR, the industry standard is to use the air filter rating system of Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV). The MERV rating system helps you choose the filter right for you, with each rating dictating the effectiveness of a filter. The higher the MERV rating, the more efficient the filter, and the more a filter can catch harmful pollutants.

HEPA air filters have an efficiency rating of 17 to 20. However, most residential HVAC systems can't accommodate HEPA filters because they are too large or restrict airflow. Switching to HEPA filters will significantly improve your indoor air quality, but doing so will probably require calling a heating and cooling professional to retrofit your furnace.
Check the outside of the  housing for buildup of debris, which can impact the efficiency of the unit.    Grass clippings and dryer lint particularly can foul the grates.  Be careful not to dent the heat exchanger fins, if exposed (more common on older units).   These look alot like a car radiator, or the outside of a window A/C unit.   Keep the area around the unit free of plants and materials, to help the air to flow freely for best efficiency.

Unfortunately, HEPA filters restrict too much air to be used as a traditional furnace filter. A HEPA filter is extremely efficient, but a significant amount of air pressure is needed to force air through a HEPA filter. A typical HVAC system will not be equipped to provide enough air pressure to use a HEPA filter (which basically means that no air would blow out of your registers). In order to use a HEPA filter for whole house filtration, you need to install a separate HEPA filtration system. A system like this will pull some of the air out of the regular air flow through your furnace, and then boost the air and pass it through a HEPA filter. The extremely filtered air is then returned back into the normal air flow.  Source

The body, which is often called the canister, is significantly larger for these filters than it is for other types of filters. Each canister will have locations to hold each different type of filter media, and the large canisters will have more filter media. This type of filter does take more effort to set up and maintain, in exchange for its power and flexibility.
Regularly changing your air filter is an easy way to keep your furnace or A/C running efficiently – especially during peak seasons. A fresh home air filter will help extend the life of your HVAC unit and reduce maintenance costs over time. Most importantly, you and your family will breathe fresh air and avoid harmful airborne allergens and viruses.

The locations are limited and the age of the containers and fleet is not clear. "Some containers are new and some are older," says a customer service representative of the containers, who refrained from answering about the fleet age. But the company is operating a little more than 20 years and markets itself as constantly updating its offerings. I would imagine that includes the trucks and even the forklifts and not just the containers.
In addition, my parents are moving from Fort Lee, NJ to Ridgefield Park, NJ, so I'll write about the company's local move services too. I tried to order the moving containers during busy season for movers (late spring to early summer). I tried to complete the order and later cancel it, but it didn't quite work out with Door to Door. (More on this later) Still, by keeping the particulars of the move roughly the same for each order, I've made it possible for you to easily compare.
On the other hand, college students who had used the moving service reported lots of back and forth because the company said it had "overbooked" and could not deliver their stuff to them on time. In the end, the students ended up paying movers to pick up their stuff and spent more than they had planned, according to a review posted by Hali M. in Stanford, CA.
Door to Door, which is based in Seattle, claims to have "revolutionized the self-storage industry" when it opened in 1996 and introduced the world to portable, containerized storage. When reading between the lines of what is written by the company on the website, you might notice that Door to Door feels it set the standard for the portable storage container industry, and it might feel slighted about not getting as much of the glory as some of its competitors do.
People moving to and from tiny houses and small apartments might not be concerned when a portable storage container offers only one size container that fits about a room or a room and a half's worth of stuff. But those of us moving from larger homes must take this into consideration. Door to Door's standard moving container is 56 inches wide by 93 inches long by 77 inches tall on the inside. Its door opening is 46 inches wide by 74 inches tall. You can fit about one room of stuff in there, maybe a little more, according to the website. PODS has really spoiled people because it offers different sized containers. Now, I should mention that, according to the customer documents on the site, Door to Door also has an alternative wood container and an alternative metal container, which are at least slightly taller. But they are not available in every market and they are not highly publicized. I only stumbled upon them by scouring the customer documents, such as terms and services and an addendum about the specifics of the company offerings.
For those on private well water, like my family, the situation can be even more problematic. Wells are often the source of water contaminated with modern agricultural products including fertilizers, glyphosate-based herbicides like Roundup and pesticides. It can also contain high levels of bacteria such as E-coli, can have excess calcium and magnesium contributing to hard water, rust that discolors laundry and bathrooms, and be very toxic with heavy metals such as arsenic, mercury and more.

As stated earlier, I was not able to get a quote or make a reservation with Door to Door because the addresses I've been using for these reviews did not fall in Door to Door territory. But in reading the Yelp reviews, especially the recent ones, a couple themes emerged. One was that the prices were cheaper than competitors in the portable storage industry. In fact, some of the customers ultimately chose Door to Door for that very reason. Of course, everyone's budget is different, so this might not be the case for you, but it was for a number of the reviewers. Also, even if the cheaper price led many of them to opt for the service, they did not all find it to be a good value at the end of their move or storage experience, which is something else to keep in mind.


In addition, most of the country (210 million Americans), now have their municipal water fluoridated without the consent of the homeowner. Fluoride is a nasty chemical derived from the fertilizer industry as a waste product from its manufacturing process. All of these chemicals have been shown to have deleterious health effects including reduced IQ in children.


Update 04/28/2018: This is actually an old update, but this video wasn't getting much traction at the time, so I didn't feel the need to provide one. The Enbridge Obundsman reached out to me to get more details of the case. After I discussed everything with them, they said they would perform and investigation and get back to me. After about a week, they called me back and said the investigation would be performed internally from here on out. They gave me no details of of what happened or if any changes are being made. I am under the impression that they changed absolutely nothing. I informed them that there are many other cases of the same type of fraud as many other victims have reached out to me in a similar situation. They said due to privacy reasons, they cannot discuss the cases with those customers and everything is dealt with on a case-by-case basis. It makes no sense to me why they would deal with something as serious as fraud on a case-by-case basis. It should be taken a whole and if there are multiple cases of fraud, then the company should be banned billing through Enbridge. Due to Enbridge not taking any action, they are essentially helping this company commit fraud. I hope this video can shine some light on the many victims falling prey to this scam and changes will be made in the future.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
