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.
What a great idea! The website was easy to navigate, I was even able to take care of everything on my iPhone. The follow up and emails telling me when my shipment was sent all the way through delivery is fantastic. The filter arrived, it was carefully packaged. This is going to make our home so much fresher! With our cats and our allergies, we need to change the filter regularly. But because of having to go to the store, find the correct size, and and all of that, got to admit we haven’t been that regular with it. This is going to make it so much better! Coming into a Texas summer, this is going to make her air-conditioning work that much more efficiently too.

The best water filter solutions are known as Whole House Water Systems or Point-of-Entry Systems. They are perfectly suited for those looking to address water problems before the water enters the home. Thus, all water is cleaned whether for cooking, drinking, laundry, bathing, or watering the vegetable garden. This means that every faucet in the home (and even outside faucets) delivers clean, safe, great tasting water!


The simple way is to look at the manufacturer’s tank size which is typically shown on the box. However, this is just a general guideline and depending on your fish you may need more or less. That said I always start with a filter than can turn over my tanks water volume at least 10x per hour. So for a 10-gallon tank, I would want something that is rated with at least 100GPH.
Yes, yes, I am a broken record. I stress this in every portable storage container review because it is the best upside ever for someone like me who hates driving and is terrified of hauling my giant stuff in a giant truck all by myself. Door to Door offers the option of storing your stuff at a facility and picking it up yourself (or having movers do it) or letting Door to Door transport the items.
Mechanical air filters remove dust by capturing it on the filter medium, the material that makes up the filter element. A mechanical air filter is any type of dry media filter. All of the throwaway air filters used in HVAC systems and Air Handlers are mechanical air filters. Any man made or natural fiber filter is a mechanical air filter. This includes HEPA air filters as well.  Source

"The day of move in Boston was particularly crazy because the city had closed off our street for major construction. Door-to-door worked with me on the phone to help notify the driver and then he did some voodoo magic getting those pods from his truck that was parked on a neighboring side street that was one way the wrong way and to our front door… Mad props to these guys and their drivers."
The filter with more pleats per foot across the face will allow you to have better airflow throughout your home.  The more air that flows through your house, the more often it is passed and re-circulated through the filter. The end result is cleaner air because of the higher frequency of air passes through the filter.  For example, if you could find a way to install a hospital grade operating room filter in your home unit, it wouldn’t do you much good because your fan and motor doesn’t have enough power to push enough air through it.  A good quality filter with a high MERV 11 rating can actually leave you with dirtier air than using a cheap 1 dollar filter if the MERV 11 filter doesn’t have enough pleats per foot.  Less pleats per foot is a cheap and dirty way for filter sellers to trick buyers into thinking they are getting a better deal. Insist on MERV 11 filters that have a minimum of 18 pleats per foot!  Source

As a veteran of the portable storage container industry, Door to Door knows how to navigate storage and moving. It's kind of their thing. For the last 20 years, the company has grown, which indicates the team knows its stuff. In addition, the company reports regularly improving the containers used to store and haul customer belongings. Frequently, its team members responded to reviewers with questions and concerns on Yelp. This indicates a keen awareness of the industry and attempts to use what they're learning from clients to improve services.
I don't want to harp on the issue of whether wood is sturdy enough. Much like other portable storage companies, Door to Door offers mostly wood containers and a weatherproof cover. Many reviewers had no issue with this fact. But a couple of the ones on Yelp mentioned warping and dents, nothing major. And it sounded as though Door to Door responded to fix problems that rested on its shoulders. But if protecting your stuff is of the utmost importance, then you might be more inclined to pick a metal container over a wood one. It's a matter of preference and priorities. In the case of Door to Door, which seems to put all the responsibility on the shoulders of the customer when it comes to the care of the stuff held in the container (read the terms and services) and has no visible insurance plans on the website, the type of container may be elevated in importance.
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.
Getting an exact fit is crucial to having an effective air filter - the wrong size won't fit and will cause the filter to stop working properly. To ensure you get the right fit, take your current air filter out and check the size printed on the frame. And if you need a custom sized filter, The Home Depot has you covered. We also offer an air filter subsciption. Check out some air filters that are air filter subscription eligible.

I found that Door 2 Door ends up adding on fees until their containers are no longer a good value for their size. I also found that promises made to me by sales associates on the phone were different than their actual procedures and charges. It seems that they promise you convenience and customer service but then when it is time to deliver on those promises, the story changes. I also found that the delivery driver of the truck was pretty rude and dismissive. I would not use them again.

MERV 13: A MERV 13 air filter however will capture even smaller dust particles, dirt, pollen, mold spores, pet dander and more from your home's air. A MERV 13 air filter is great for people with regular allergies and who own multiple pets. The MERV 13 filter is typically more expensive and will also put more strain on your HVAC system, however the high quality filtration you will get will be well worth it. 
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.
Installing a washable, reusable air filter can help save you money over disposable filters—which must be frequently repurchased (approximately every 90 days in the average suburban home, and every 60 days or sooner if you have pets). Instead of fully replacing your filter several times a year (which can be very costly), simply wash and reinstall your new K&N® lifetime washable home air filter in your cooling and heating system.

Similar to fiberglass filters, disposable pleated polyester filters have a sizable surface field and a rating of 5 to 13. The pleats increase the surface area and make the furnace filters more efficient at capturing airborne particles. A pleated air filter with a medium efficiency rating can filter small to large particles. Filters with a rating of 7 to 13 provide a level of effectiveness compatible with absolute high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, but at a lower price point.

The website indicates that Door to Door can help people move in Jacksonville, Miami, Orlando, and Tampa, Fla. I thought things might be different for storage, so I tried to get a quote for storage in the Kissimmee zip code and I kept getting stalled. There was no message indicating whether the day was booked or the area was not among those served. But I could not get any date I had chosen through May and June. I feel kind of rejected to be honest. It's as if I went on a blind date, the guy saw me, and ran out without introducing himself. Now, I'm sitting at the table all by lonesome with a single red rose. It's kind of pathetic. Nonetheless, I have no prices to report.


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. 
There’s no co-mingling or transferring. Your belongings stay put until we deliver to your destination. And there’s one household shipment per trailer. Any space you don’t use is used to ship commercial goods moving in the same direction. Trailers are equipped with secure divider walls (most are lockable), and you can put your own lock on your ReloCube and keep the key.

Compared to The Home Depot’s method of ranking air filters (FPR), MERV has wider range. While FPR’s rating system goes from 1 to 10, MERV’s rating system goes from 1 to 20. FPR 10 is similar in strength to MERV 20, since they are both the highest rating value. However, FPR 1 doesn’t necessarily equate to MERV 1. It isn’t until FPR 4 and 5 that filters start trapping larger particles like household dust and lint, dust mites, pollen and pet dander. Meanwhile, MERV 1 to 4 will trap all these pollutants. Some examples of MERV below:
Some of my goods were damaged clearly during transportation. Additionally, it was impossible to arrange delivery and pick up times once you picked your day. (This inconvenienced the buyers of my home, as the storage containers sat in front of the house until 5pm despite closing at 10am.) However, I booked them for their convenience and their customer service is great.
They advertise that they will be compensating a $52,000 Base Salary plus commission after hiring. All of a sudden everyone is excited about their base check every week until they bring you into orientation and tell you that you have to pass a test. After then until you are eligible for the base salary. You have to make five door to door sales and you are dropped off in in the middle of South Phoenix by yourself with... no help. Keep in mind that this is in the Arizona heat and they do not pick you up until 8:00 pm. These people are nothing but scam artists and have you working like dogs. YOU WILL HAVE NO LIFE!!! and the best part is that do not pay you for any training. People please do not waist your time. I have a college education and understand that when an employer tells you that you are going to be compensated a $52,000 salary they do not place stipulations thereafter. They are nothing but crooks.

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.
High airflow helps reduce strain on your heating and cooling system and requires less energy, which can translate to savings for you! When a filter becomes extremely clogged, airflow through the filter begins to slow, which can force an HVAC system to work harder to compensate. Replacing a disposable filter every 60-90 days can be inconvenient and expensive—instead, you can simply rinse clean your K&N lifetime washable furnace filter to help keep your HVAC system running smoothly.

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).
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!
