I am slow to get things done. One of the Baby Step challenges way back toward the beginning of the Conscious Shopper Challenge was to get a reusable air filter, and I totally meant to...but I am slow to get things done.
So two months after the challenge, I sent my husband out to get us a reusable air filter. For some reason, he went to Walmart (which was odd because we rarely ever go to Walmart), but the filter he brought home was the wrong size. Another month passed, and I found myself at Home Depot staring at air filters. They had one reusable style, also the wrong size.
Finally, last month, I started searching around online, and I found a company called Air Commander, Permanent Air Filters that was having a 50% off sale. Perfect!
(Incidentally, they are still having that sale. Maybe they are one of those companies that constantly has a sale going. Either way, you should definitely take advantage of it.)
We decided to go with their Gold Enforcer 94 with a gold anodized metal frame because it seemed to be their best filter and I figured if you're going to buy something that lasts a long time, you ought to buy the best.
We've been very happy with our purchase. The frame seems to be well constructed, and although I haven't cleaned it yet (we've only had it installed for a couple weeks), it doesn't seem too difficult to clean. We had a slight confusion about what size we needed to order which was totally my fault, but their customer service was excellent and cleared the problem right up.
So if any of you readers are also slow to get things done and still need to check off that Baby Step of the Conscious Shopper Challenge, check out Air Commander for reusable air filters.
Disclosure: I purchased this product with my own money and was not asked to write any sort of review at all, but I was pleased with their very helpful customer service, and one good turn deserves another.
