Replacement Home Air Filters Should Top Back To School List
As part of getting ready for back to school to combat the symptoms of poor indoor air quality that can impact the health and performance of their children this coming school year, parents should change their home air filters on a consistent schedule.
“The air you breathe inside your home has a crucial impact on your child’s scholastic achievement”
Studies conducted by the EPA show that “Asthma-related illness is a primary cause of school absenteeism, accounting for 14.7 million missed school days per year, and that asthma affects one out of every 13 school-aged children.” These statistics have steadily climbed for the last two decades. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concurs and states that changing your home air filter at least every ninety days reduces the incidence of exposures in the home can boost student attendance.
Bock points out that not all air filters are created equal. “Consider that you spend close to sixty percent of your time inside your own home,” says Bock. “That’s why we only deliver premium air filters to our Members, because you can’t find this kind of quality on the aisle next to the discount school supplies at the big box retailers.” According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, fifty percent of illnesses are either caused and/or aggravated by polluted indoor air. Bock says that most HVAC system manufactures and the EPA point out that replacing your home’s air filter with MERV11, pleated air filters on a schedule considered the best way to improve your home’s IAQ. These are typically only found at home improvement stores.
Replacement air filters certainly do not top the list of priorities for families, especially during the “back-to-school”
“As a mother of two, I understand the challenges of remembering to replace your air filters. We wanted to make it easy to remember and convenient to change for the health of families across America”, says Bock about the convenience of the subscription service. “Our intention was for price not to ever be a barrier, and for the overall cost to be cheaper than the time, gas, and costs of buying your air filters at a store. Breathing healthy air inside your home should be a choice everyone can afford to make.”
