Air Quality

My household is full of allergy suffers. I have spent the better part of this spring sniffling, sneezing and coughing. One thing that I know helps decrease my issues is ensuring that my husband changes our air filter on a regular basis. This is important because United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies indicate that indoor levels of many pollutants may be two to five times higher than outdoor levels, making it one of the top five urgent environmental risks to public health.

Using a high performance air filter, such as a Filtrete filter, may help improve indoor air quality. Take a visit to to hear more facts about the importance of good air quality in your home. While you're there, play the Filtrete Clean Air Fact or Fiction to test your knowledge of indoor air quality. You could win a home inspection from Steve Ramos, featured home inspector on HGTV's House Detective.

We change our filters every three months as recommended (sometimes because of a lot of nagging from me) but if you have too much on your plate to remember when to change the filter, you can receive seasonal e-newsletters featuring special offers, filter change reminders, better home living tips and more on Also, on a weekly baisis the first 50 people to sign up each week will receive a free bamboo plant - a natural air purifier.

For my household having the cleanest air possible is a necessity and it is amazing how much better we feel when we are taking care of the air quality of our home.
