I think I’ll be getting some HEPA air filters

I had some friends over at my place the other day. There was this one guy who I didn’t really know. He was a friend of a friend pretty much. Well, he started talking about the air quality in my house. He was telling everybody it was a little lacking. He got around to asking me about my air filter and he asked how often I changed it. I was irritated with the guy at this point and I told him that it was none of his business how often I changed my air filter. He was a little surprised at my defensive response and he was saying that he meant no harm. He said that his father was an HVAC technician and he worked with him a lot with various types of heating and cooling systems. He said that he knew quite a few energy saving tips, and that was one of the major ones, changing out the air filter regularly. Honestly, this peaked my interest so I told him to explain further. He was saying that changing out the air filter every other month was not only great for keeping the air quality good, but it also allowed the system to run at optimal efficiency which would ultimately make your energy bills lower every month. He said it also would allow for the system to last a lot longer because all the dirt and debris don’t get into the equipment to cause damages. I was curious and asked about what type of air filters he recommended. He said definitely go with HEPA air filters, they are the best for air quality! I think I’m going to be getting some of those HEPA air filters…
