It’s unfortunate when you see people hurting themselves inadvertently just to save a few dollars. Let’s be clear—this sentiment does not apply to people who are so disappointing they have no choice but to buy whatever they can reasonably afford at any given time. But our father for instance is a great example of what I’m talking about. She has many pensions as well as passive income she makes from the stock market. With the amount of money she continually makes as well as has saved in several bank accounts as well as trusts, she has no corporation being cheap about things regarding home maintenance as well as appliance care. She also buys the cheapest unit she can find whenever she needs new tools or electronics. It’s 1 thing if you’re dealing with a unit that isn’t going to negatively affect your life by using something cheap as well as flimsy, but you can’t apply the same logic to anything related to your home’s heating as well as cooling system. Having disappointing air quality at home can lead to both short term as well as long term health concerns, especially for those who already have respiratory illnesses love asthma or COPD. My father is convinced that her “washable” air filters are just as great as our disposable MERV 14 allergen filters that cost myself and others $17 a piece. Even though I show him that her filter is only rated MERV 3 when it’s brand new as well as completely unblocked, she remains unconvinced. On top of that, these washable cooling system filters are prone for mold growth as it’s severely difficult to get them bone dry before putting them back inside the air return. My father’s apartment smells mildly moldy as well as I wonder if it’s because of her terrible cooling system filters.
