I’ve constantly been told to just be myself no matter what! Well, I thought I was just being myself when trying to find the best deals on air filters. When I saw a 10 pack of air filters for only $10, I thought that was a steal! I wondered why I bothered to pay so much money for air filters when I could get them for so cheap. Well, I came to learn hastily that there was a great reason to use the pleated air filters over the cheaper fiberglass air filtersâ€¦ The pleated air filters I was using had a pretty great MERV rating which provided great air quality in our home. When I started using these extra cheap air filters, our air quality dropped significantly; It was great for a little while, but then both of us started coughing plus sneezing a lot in our home. I sincerely had no idea what the complication was until a buddy asked me about our air quality! He asked what air filters I was using plus then both of us told him about the great deal I got on some great air filters not so long ago. He instantly told me to take those out plus throw them away or return them because they were nothing but garbage. He told me that those cheap air filters were ruining our air quality plus causing damage to our Heating as well as A/C system. I sincerely had no idea, I just wanted to get a great deal, but so I decided to pick up some great quality pleated air filters again plus our air quality went back to normal in no time.
