Today we’re going to talk about how important air filtration is to your home.
How often do you change the filter in your home? Was it last month? Two months ago? Six months ago? When’s the last time you actually thought about changing it? Have you changed it recently?
You’re supposed to change your air filters in your home, a standard air filter, every month, every 30 days. Most people don’t.
The top three reasons that we believe you should are:
- To protect your system, protect the investment
- To protect the quality of air in your home
- Improved energy efficiency
But does it really get that bad in 30 days? Yes… It does. It actually does. If you don’t change it, you’ll have unhealthier air and a less efficient system, driving up your energy bill as your filter becomes more clogged.
Introducing the Trane Perfect Fit Media Filter
What makes Trane’s Perfect Fit Media Filter so much better?
In a standard 1” filter, if you were to take the material and stretch it out, you’d have about a foot and a half, 18 inches of filter material.
What makes Trane’s Perfect Fit Media Filter so much better? The filter material itself has bigger pleats than the standard one inch filter. There’s over 30 feet of filter material in here that is of higher quality, which also gives it a longer lifespan.
It catches harmful pollutants faster with higher quality mesh, and the 30 feet of material allows it to effectively run longer.
Why It’s Popular with Homeowners
Trane recommends you replace the Perfect Fit Media Filter once every six months. In some homes, we actually have seen them last up to a year!
And what about cost? What’s the difference between your standard 1” filter and the Trane Perfect Fit Media filter?
To keep your air clean in your home, manufacturers recommend you change this filter once a month. This is an $8 filter, so over the course of a year, you’re looking at around $100 a year.
Whereas the Trane Perfect Fit Media Filter, if you change it once every six months as recommended, it cost you a little more than $20 extra per year.
