Posted by Erik Sternberger at

Sometimes it feels like we had just changed our filters when we get an alert that it's time to change them again. (You did sign up for our alert, right?)Now, if you don't want to have to worry about ever changing your filter again, you do have options. You could just wash your filter.The Ever-Flow® Lightning® Mechano-Static® Lifetime MERV 8 Air Filter is a lifetime filter that replaces the need to change out your filters saving you money in the long run, and a whole bunch of filters or several trips to the store (or the internet. *cough* filter-guru.com *cough*).
