I don’t know about you, but I battle allergies, even in the fall.  Did you know that you could experience allergies year-round?  If you or a family member is experiencing allergy symptoms, you may want to consider washing your bedding more frequently, removing shoes at the door and changing out your air filter on a regular basis.  You may also want to consider using the Filtrete Healthy Living Filter, which captures up to 93 percent of airborne particles, including Pollen, Smoke Particles, Pet Dander, Household Dust, Smog Contamination, Dust Mite Debris, Lint, Mold Spores, Bacteria and Particles that can carry viruses from the air passing through the filter. 

If you are suffering from allergies during the Winter Season, you should definitely check out the Filtrete Healthy Living Filter, MPR 1900.  It’s ideal for allergens and small particles like bacteria and viruses.  It captures up to 93 percent of large airborne particles, such as household dust, pollen, mold spores and dust mite debris, from the air passing through the filter.  The filter also captures 4X times more microscopic particles, such as smoke, smog, pet dander and particles that can carry bacteria and viruses, than ordinary pleated filters.  The Filtrete Healthy Living Filter lasts up to three months and can be purchased at Lowe’s, Target, Walmart, Costco and your local hardware store.  The filter retails for $19.99-$21.99.

    Of course, how often you change your filter has a lot to do with how often your heating and air conditioner systems are on. One professional suggested we buy colored filters, and when the filter looks white, it is time to change it!
