It’s that time of year again. Where pumpkin spice rules the stores and if your going into town you automatically buy a coffee. Most of us are happy to see chilly weather come after a hot summer but there are some things that fall brings along that are not so pleasant.
Allergies are a big factor when going from summer to fall all over the US. The biggest contributor is ragweed. It is a flowering plant found all over North America. There are 17 different varieties of ragweed with varying different appearances and growth rates. With this year’s warm weather front continuing longer than we have expected it looks like ragweed is here to stay a little longer, according to AccuWeather.
When the regular fall season sets in we encourage everyone to change their air filters because the heaters will be on soon. But this year we recommend changing your filter because of the up swing in the pollen count. If you have a filter size ending in 1 in, we urge you to change your filter every 30 to 90 days. If you use our Tru Mini Pleat filters you could change them less often because of it’s unique design resulting in energy savings! If you opt for the Tru Mini Pleat we urge you to stick with the Merv 8 rating which is an equivalent to a Merv 12 in a regular pleated filter.
Changing your filter regularly is way more important than that pumpkin spice coffee your drinking right now. Don’t put off changing your filter because it will harm the air you breathe in your own home! So do yourself a favor and get some new air filters so that you and your family can breathe happier, breathe easier and breathe pure.
