Here at Nordic Pure we get a lot of stories from people about what is in their homes. We normally have to help them decipher what filter will work best for them. The most recent story though is my own.
I started working for Nordic Pure and have been living in an apartment. I am in my late twenties but have always worked and been raised to know how to clean a house to change my oil. Even with all that knowledge I never thought about my home air filter. I just assumed that the apartment complex was changing them. I didn’t even know how often they should be changed. That just goes to show those of us without breathing problems take air for granted.
So when I started working for Nordic Pure I asked my apartment complex if I could change my own filters and they said absolutely! So I started using Nordic Pure’s best seller the MERV 12; great filtration and great airflow. When I pulled out the cheap fiberglass filter that the apartment uses it was clogged completely. It is a 1 in. filter so it needs to be changed every 30 to 90 days depending on the person’s environment. It is just myself and my fiance with no pets so we don’t have a lot of stuff in our air. Since I have replaced our filter with a quality filter it has made such a difference. Although I did notice that the ceiling fan in our bedroom accumulated a lot of black dust still.
To solve that problem I spoke with my coworkers who have been in the industry awhile and they mentioned I should try our ceiling fan filters. Two to a pack, they are about 8 in. in length and white with a sticky strip on the back. Peel off the cover to the sticky strip and slap them on top your fan blades. While the fan spins it will catch all the dust in your room. So I tried it; best decision I have made of late.
I had them on for about four months and looked up one day and notice the ceiling fan filter was black! Time to change! Once my fiance peeled the filter off the fan we were shocked at how much it caught and just how dirty it was. We could have been breathing that in!
I showed it to the apartment office manager, letting them know that the ducts are probably really dirty. They immediately set up to have ours cleaned. Although they came and cleaned the ducts they said nothing was wrong. I disagree but regardless the apartment tried to make it right and the ducts are now clean and I know now that I will always use the Nordic Pure ceiling fan filters.
