Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 EcoTip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.
 
1:5:10:186 EcoTip: To check your air cleaner’s air flow you can use the same method I discussed for checking the air flow coming from your furnace registers in 1:5:10:365 EcoTip :111 called “Fill a Bag”.
 
By timing how long it takes to fill a plastic trash bag with air when your filters are new, you can judge when the filters are 50% loaded because it will take twice as long to fill the same bag.

  1. Thats a good idea. There are also gauges that mount on your furnace that have a probe that goes between your filter and your blower motor. The gauge senses the vacuum in the chamber and when the filter gets dirty it raises the vacuum which shows on the gauge. These are great to take the hassel out of remembering to change the filter you’ll have an easy way to know if it needs change and in turn can save you time and money!
