Replacing Air Filter

Today is my day to replace air filter in my home and I want to share the trick that I've been doing for years and it seem to worked out very well.

Majority of us forget to change the filter as recommended by the manufacturer. A clogged air filter make system fan works harder to push all the air around the house. Changing air filter make air conditioning or heater works more efficient, the air in the house circulate better, and save you money since the house get cool or warm faster.
However, most often, we usually forgot when the last time we change the filter so by marking the filter with the date, it's easy to tell when it need to be replaced.

Many people write the date somewhere to remind them. However, I found it more convenient to just write the date on the filter itself since most of the filter is paper and easy to write on. Another advantage is it is right where it is, I don't have to remember where I write down the information.

First, before replacing the new filter, I used a marker to write down the current month year around the edges of the filter. I find that month is good enough for me but you can also write down the day if you prefer.

That way, after installation, I can easily see the date through the vent.
This way, I can easily check when the last time I change the filter and replacing it accordingly.
In additional to replacing the filter. Before putting in the filter, I put a few air freshener bottle.
Therefore, when the A/C or Heater is running, while the air is circulating, the air freshener will help clean the air in my home.
There you have it. Hope this small trick will help the air in your home is cleaner and in turn make you healthier.

As always, thanks for reading.
