This is not formally a filter, but its operation will affect your air quality, and it may have a screen or a sponge that can get clogged.   Check the manual to see how it operates.    Many older furnace mounted humidifiers have been neglected or abandoned.   See if yours works; call a heating specialist to service it if you are not sure.   Winters in Toronto can be pretty dry and it is best if you can keep the humidity level in your home between 35 – 50%.
Using more storage units means spending more money. It also might require more drives back and forth either on the part of the company or you. That sound you hear is the swoosh of all the money being sucked out of your pockets. Still, I can understand how this option can be convenient and affordable for kids moving into the dorms and those in smaller homes and apartments. And I - as I've mentioned time and again - appreciate the thought of not having to drive this stuff on a huge truck. Yes, it's always worth repeating.

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.
Mr. Sinclair's comments are focused on selling filters. Washable electrostatic filters can have much higher MERV ratings than the disposable ones. So you are getting better air filtration for you and your furnace. The water from a washed furnace filter is no more toxic than the water you wash the floor or walls of your house. You flush or pour that down the drain. Anything will grow mold if you put it away damp. Let it dry out first, (Duh!) Over time, the disposables cost more than the washable, plus the cost of disposing and landfill issues. If you want higher filtration, spend less money, have a more environmentally friendly home, use a washable filter, clean it every 4-6 weeks and let it dry before you put it back in place.
Some furnaces come equipped with this filter, and there are various configurations.   Find the manual and become familiar with it’s operation. You can pull out the filters and check them, make sure they are clean and in place.   Hire a forced air heating specialist if you are unsure about how to operate / clean it and have them show you how it works.
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.

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 have no prices to ponder. But I did check out online reviews of the storage and moving options the company offers. Door to Door has three out of five stars on Yelp. Many of the most recent reviewers ultimately chose Door to Door because the price was significantly cheaper among the portable storage container companies. However, many had mixed feelings about the customer experience when discussing the move and storage, so the question of value is up in the air.
Great product, great customer service, fast shipping! I have always been a stickler on changing my filter monthly because to me it’s better to spend a few extra dollars along the way then pay a large maintenance bill. I love this service because I no longer have to remember to go to the store to buy the filters and I just replace it when it shows up at my front door!
Hello. I have a 30 gallon tank I clean religiously every Monday to keep optimal and healthy happy fish. Freshwater with a couple mollies “Pearl, Spot and Elvis”, 2 guppies “Nemo and Dory”, an albino Plecko “Dart”, a bristlenoe Plecko “Dino” (very lazy and doesn’t do anything for my tank hence the albino plecko lol), and a community Betta “Cinderella” (yes that’s right a Betta in with my other community fish). She loves to play in the water flow from the side hanging filter BUT I can’t stand the noise it makes constantly like a waterfall. I was hoping for something a bit quieter but not to much it would hurt Cinderella’s scales. Also the bettas eat so slow with side hanging filtration I have to turn it off at every feeding to allow her time to eat otherwise as slow as she eats all her food just gets pulled away and she goes hungry and I need something I can trust to not harm her AND allow her food to rest at the top to eat comfortably. Also I’m on disability so the more affordable on upkeep such as replacement filters I NEED to keep in mind because this side hanger the filters are getting expensive. I need to change them every other week because they have become so cheaply made that cleaning them just doesn’t get the job done but once MAYBE twice now. Thanks in advance.
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:
“This filter has given us water that is as good or better than the large bottles of spring water we'd been buying,” one tester revealed. In addition to the water quality, reviewers liked that once it was set up, the separate faucet was easy to access, with the filter system fitting nicely underneath the sink. The one negative, according to our reviewers, was the time-consuming installation, but, overall, they thought it was worth the price tag: “We'll have to buy new filters, but we'll still save money in the long run by no longer buying bottled water,” one person noted.
They were on time, and our stuff was not damaged. This company gave a quote that was 30% off of the final amount. They also charged us for locks that were not delivered. The containers are not consistent in build. Some were very close to the end of their service life... probably past that date. They do have an interesting concept. It appears that Trucking companies do this along with their main business of logistics. They are a bit disorganized, probably because this is not their main business. The main contact office (the franchiser) is also a bit difficult to work with, as there isn't consistently among the various part-time customer service reps.
These filters can trap very small particles of dust, pollen, mold, and other irritants. Some of these filters work much like the air and oil filters in your car. They are made using pleated filter paper. Other filters are made with fine synthetic polyester fibers. Higher efficiency air filters can sometimes be coated with chemicals that can kill tiny microbes such as bacteria and mold. There are several advantages to using these higher efficiency air filters. Not only will your heating and cooling equipment perform better, your operating costs may well be lower. The air you breathe will be cleaner, as will your furniture and drapes. That $60 service call could have bought 10 filters that may have lasted through five cooling seasons!  Source
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.

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.
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.
Sponge filters can look large and bulky in your tank. Some air pumps can be pretty noisy, too. Most sponge filters are rated for tanks up to 10 gallons in size, which limits options for larger tanks. But there are solutions out there–multiple sponge filters in a single tank could provide adequate filtration rates. And some sponge filters pair well with certain HOB filters.
