They had some air filters that were reusable and they had a HEPA filter that was reusable.
I was so excited to be able to finally be on my own. I thought that going to college would be the big thrill, but it was actually having my own apartment. I wasn’t sure how I was going to handle being alone. I never had to do anything at home other than make my bed and put my clothes away. All of a sudden I had some things that I had to do. One of those things was to make sure I changed the air filters in the air conditioning unit. The first thing I had to do was to find the air conditioning unit. Once I found the AC unit, I had to figure out where to put the air filter and how. This took me almost an hour, but I had the air filter in my hand. I couldn’t believe that something like this could get so full of dirt, dust and hair. I was totally disgusted with what I saw and even with the odor. I the numbers off the air filter and I headed to the home center. I couldn’t believe how many different air filters there were. There were air filters made of fiberglass and some that were folded paper. They had some air filters that were reusable and they had a HEPA filter that was reusable. My dad used to put HEPA filters into the HVAC system at home. He always said they helped my allergies. I showed the customer service man at the Home center, my air filter numbers and asked if he had a reusable HEPA filter in that size. I took my new air filter home and installed it into the AC unit.
