It’s that wonderful time of year when the weather warms up and the trees and flowers begin to bloom. While we’re all excited for more sun and fun outside, the onset of spring can leave many of us with itchy watery eyes, runny noses, stuffy noses and sneezing and wheezing like maniacs. Yes, it’s spring allergy season. While allergies can be a nuisance this time of year, spring isn’t the only reason allergies can strike. In fact, the air inside our home can be a major allergy trigger, circulating allergens such as dirt, dust, pollutants, pet dander, and mold spores that can affect us year-round. So what should we do? While constant vacuuming can help, the easiest way to minimize your exposure to these allergy-causing air invaders is to…drumroll please—replace your air filter or filters. If you were expecting something more glamorous, we apologize. But this one quick and easy home care step can make a big difference to the air quality in your home. Air filters trap allergens so they don’t circulate in your home. And if the air in your home is healthy, both people and pets are healthy.
The point is that replacing the air filter in your home is too easy. Like, most of us forget to make it easy. Maybe you didn’t even realize you had to do it at all. And if you’ve just moved into a house or apartment that isn’t brand new, there’s no telling when the air filter was changed, or at all. Phew. That’s okay because we’re here to help. The best way to stay on top of this one very important task is with Second Nature (formerly FilterEasy). Second Nature is a home air filter subscription service that delivers air filters to your home right when you need to replace them. It’s so easy, it’s genius!
That’s why Second nature and clean house filters should be in your home:
Keeping the air in your home clean is important for staying healthy and fighting allergies
If the air filters in your home are old and dirty, they become a major source of air pollution in your home. Air filters should clean the air in your home, not make it worse. If anyone in your home, including children or pets, is prone to allergies or has asthma, dirty filters can make symptoms much worse. Second Nature filters clean the air in your home by removing allergens such as bacteria, mold, dirt, dust mites, pollen, pollution, pet dander, and dander that can exacerbate allergy symptoms.
So, how often should you change the air filters in your home? It depends.
It is recommended that air filters for allergens in the average home be changed approximately every 3 months. In homes with pets, children, or people with allergies, it is best to change filters every 1-2 months. You may also want to change it more often if you live on a busy street or in a city with poor air quality. If you have a lot of pets or have severe allergies, it is recommended that you change your air filters every 30-45 days.
