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.
Indeed, the company spends a significant bit of text explaining what makes their containers strong and durable. The storage containers are made of wood and prevent condensation, mold, and mildew and the cover resists weather, according to the website. It also touts the container's ability to fit into driveways and parking spaces and accommodate apartment and condo loading areas.
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.

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.

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
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:

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.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money -- so I write a lot about "outside the box" ideas that most wouldn't think of. Specifically, household tips and life hacks are my jam! I’m also a lifelong dog owner -- so I often share my favorite tips for living with dogs inside your home (including smart home design choices and dog-friendly decorating ideas). When I’m not cleaning, organizing, decorating, or fixing something… you'll always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).

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.

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.
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.
