Suffering in the Heat Wave? An Energy Saving Tip

June 9th, 2008

Blogging is pretty hard tonight with the temperature soaring to 87 degrees – indoors! Seems our trusty air conditioner is not so trusty anymore.

When the friendly a/c repairman came by, we were in for a big shock. If you’re prone to allergies, you may have purchased the newly popular “filtrettes” that offer “microparticle reduction.” Slightly thicker than regular air conditioner filters, they claim to remove indoor allergens.

Well, Mr. Repairman informed us that these thick filters just put a strain on a/c units, particularly in hot weather. They reduce your air conditioner’s energy efficiency.

“Pollen shouldn’t get inside anyway,” Mr. Fix-It pointed out. “I think it’s just marketing.”

So stay cool, save money, and reduce your carbon load – buy regular filters and change them every 30 days!

Stay cool, friends!
