Here’s a riveting topic for an easy read at any given moment for any given person….dun dun dun…….measuring and finding the right size air filter for your home. I know, you’re welcome. So here is the problem, if you were to ask me, I would simply respond with “get a guy”. Whether it’s a husband, your best friend, the neighborhood florist, a boyfriend, your dad, or your sister. Just have someone else deal with it. Am I right? But the truth of the matter is, you can do it like it “ain’t no thang” plus it’s a bit of information that needs to be known and needs to be correct. So buckle down and do it yourself because unfortunately, if your air filter is the wrong size, things just won’t be workin’ like they should. Because size does matter….
Let’s get down to the nitty gritty and make this as easy as possible. It only takes a few simple steps:
- Measure the length and the width (L x W). If you’re looking at your filter and it doesn’t seem perfectly square, the smaller measurement goes first.
- Now, measure the depth (D). See how thick that bad boy is. If you find yourself with a depth larger than 1”, don’t panic. Air still has you covered, just look into our custom filters and all will be right in the world.
- Now comes the hard part, for me anyway (math never really was my strong suit). Put the measurements together (L x W x D). Now, at this point you might think you are done…..you’re kind of wrong.
- Grab your computer, find a comfortable spot on the couch, put your feet up and set up your subscription with rememberair.com. Why is this the final and most important step? Because knowing those filter measurements and doing nothing about it is as bad as letting a perfectly good milk shake melt on the counter, it does no one any good. At Air, we’re all about simplicity and nothing is simpler than having a fresh clean air filter delivered to your front door at the exact time you need to change out the old one. So go ahead, sign up and then never worry about it again!
FYI…..there is a very high probability that the size of your filter is printed right on the side of your current air filter. In fact, it might be printed on more than one side. If that is the case, you definitely should have just skipped steps 1-3 and headed straight to number 4 with your feet up.
