Indoor air pollutants rate among the top five environmental health risks today, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Air-tight construction and home insulation contribute to poor indoor air quality. Although these home improvements stop drafts and save on energy costs, they stop fresh air from coming into your home and pollutants from leaving.
I have been using washable filters for 15 years. They are simply blasted out in my driveway with a hose (opposite of airflow), drained about 10 minutes and put back in the furnace. The furnace dries the filter out in minutes, so bacteria is never a concern. We wash them once a year, as we only run the furnace for about 3-4 months in the winter and only then about half time (live in California). Not only does it save replacing them, but saves a trip to the store, which is probably the most environmentally part. I recently had the furnace looked at by an installer and he stated we had very little dust buildup since it was last checked 9 years ago. If we need clean air in our house, we open it up for an hour or two - on warm days of course. Simple. Washable filters are cheap and environmentally friendly. Think about what happens to all those disposed of filters you toss!

8p this past saturday this dude in his mid 20s came to my door selling something similar. he led on that he represented (was subbed for) the utility company. he kept insisting that he needed to see my water shutoff valve and he had something that would save me a lot of money (more money than i actually pay in water consumption!). i kept letting him talk just to shoot down his bullshit circle talking, it was more amusing for me to troll his nonsense and keep him in the cold while wasting both our times. definitely didn't let him in. interesting how others also agree this was bullshit, yet sad to know others fall for this.
Obviously, Door to Door is best for those who live within the parameters that the company serves. It seems like many colleges also benefit from these moving and storage services, so college kids take note. "Door to Door's delivery areas vary by market, and may be limited by the local geography or topography of a given market," according to the customer document about doing business with the company. "Door to Door's standard delivery area typically includes the delivery zip codes within 25 miles of the market's warehouse facility. Additional Fees and Charges may apply for deliveries that extend beyond Door to Door's standard delivery areas."
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. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
