Are you addicted to turning your home into a Smart Home as much as I am? I feel like I really drug my feet for a long time because I enjoy being a tad ol’ fashioned in a lot of ways… but ever since we’ve started down the path of making our home “smarter,” I found out that, holy cow, life really and truly is more convenient this way.
Today, I’m sharing a more recent Smart Home feature we’ve added that has really brought a whole lot of peace of mind for our family. Did you know that Filtrete now makes a smart air filter? Before we installed our Filtrete™ Smart Air Filter, we were always guessing if it was time to change our air intake filter for our air conditioning unit. So, we would have to get out a step stool, unscrew the grate, and then find that it actually wasn’t in need of changing after all. Now all we need to do is open the app on our phone, wait a few seconds for it to sync to our air filter, and we know the exact state of our filter without any tools or neck cramps involved.
Upgrading was so easy: Installing the filter is just like installing any other filter for your AC unit. After you’ve popped it into place and closed the grate, you simply download the Filtrete™ Smart App on your smart device and follow the prompts to have it sync with the filter you’ve installed. After the setup is completed, you can open up the app, wait a few moments, and see the integrity status of the installed filters. When your filter needs changing, you will be prompted with a push notification—so you can basically activate it and then forget it. Ahh, the beauty of having one less thing on your mind to maintain in your home. Plus, snagging our new filter at Lowe’s was a breeze! We love having a Lowe’s nearby for all of our home improvement needs.
Why we made the switch: The peace of mind in knowing that we will be notified on our mobile devices when our air filter needs to be changed is such a blessing. We live in the country in dusty Arizona. Keeping the air quality in our home the best we can, including the capturing of allergens, is high on our list of priorities. Having this app available to us is so great. It’s one less thing on my plate to worry about. I can rest assured that we not only have a quality air filter installed, but also that we will be able to effortlessly keep the air quality in our home the best we can.
