Most of us, whether we choose to acknowledge it or not, are consuming water that contains the residue of treated sewage, industrial waste, agricultural chemicals, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals, fluoride, disinfectants and their byproducts, as well as storm runoff. Growing awareness of the problem is why more consumers are seeking whole house water filter options. 
Air and Water Filters in your house benefit at least two aspects of your life; Health and Cleanliness.     Every house is different, so it’s important that you find out what you’ve got.   Filters can range from a complicated assembly to a simple screen.   When changing a filter, record the date it was changed, and where possible write the date on the filter itself.
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.

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.
Many new energy efficient homes come with HRV’s.   These provide a source of fresh filtered air into the house and exhaust the stale air.   Most route the air in and out of the furnace ducting.    HRV’s have several filters including sponge sheets as well as the corrugated core.    Vacuuming or washing with soap and water usually does the trick – follow the instructions in the owner’s manual.  Sometimes instructions are labelled inside the unit too. These filters are very important for air quality in today’s newer, tighter houses.
Door to Door went into bankruptcy while my containers were in transit from Austin, TX to Sacramento, CA. There was NO communication from them as to where my containers were and WHO would deliver them. I googled them to find out what the heck happened to them.......no one would respond to emails or phone calls. I spent 6 weeks tracking them down and finding out that UHaul had bought them out of bankruptcy! I had to physically walk the UHaul container yard to FIND my containers. This was the WORST moving experience ever imagined.

Indoor air pollutants rate among the top five environmental health risks today, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

While Door to Door has many large followings, famously including college kids moving in and out of dorms, those of you on the east coast have not heard much of it. In fact, 17 states do not have a Door to Door location at all. Others might have a location or two within their state, but they are spread out and cater to a niche group. As a result, this might be a decent option for those in the Door to Door sweet spots, but it's not readily available to everyone in the way of their competitors.

Besides providing clean fresh air for your home, they can also filter harmful particulates keeping you safe from allergens and bacteria. Home air filters protect your HVAC system, but can be harmful if you don’t change them regularly. Lastly, you can save money on energy bills when you replace your home air filter. Your HVAC doesn’t have to work as hard to push air through a clean filter.
I was put in dangerous areas going to door to door and it is not safe. Outside all day long (depends where you live) I live in FL so it was brutal. Work 6 out of 7 days a week. When you get out of your training period you are ordered to "walk" with new recruits, but by doing so when you go and show them how to sell while they are supposed to watch, no talk or do anything, you have to split your entire sale 50%... with the person you are teaching. Commission is a horrible percentage of the total value of what you are selling (only 150$ for a 1,600$ system.) You get 150 working alone and walking with someone you have to split the commission. A promotion is not really a promotion. They promote you as a team leader but you are not allowed to walk and makes sales only assist over the phone to make sales and make less money with more responsibility.
Always clean the dryer filter after every load.    This will help reduce the amount of lint going down the whole dryer duct inside your house.     Having excess lint in your dryer trap can cause the dryer to work harder and even overheat.   Go outside and feel the airflow coming out of the exhaust vent when the dryer is running.   There should be a strong, hot flow of air once the dryer has been running a few minutes.  Have the dryer ducting between the dryer and the exterior cleaned about once a year.   If this duct becomes clogged, there are the possibilities of overheating and fire.    Here’s a helpful link for more information

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.

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.


The Brita On-Tap Faucet Filter uses carbon to remove common contaminants like lead, chlorine, asbestos, and more from your drinking water.
