I update our media air cleaner HEPA filters every 6 months

I got into a bad position where I had not only all of our utility as well as credit card bills on autopay, although I also had products on Amazon that were set to subscription purchases every several months. One day I accidentally dropped into the red on our bank account as well as several autopayments caused me to get several separate overdraft fees, totalling $105. I managed to convince the bank to refund several of them, however that still left me on the hook for $35. That meant making serious sacrifices this month regarding our purchases at the grocery store, as I had to come up with the extra $35 somehow. When you’re on a limited income, you can’t pull money out of thin air if you are hit with an unexpected charge. Some essentials are extravagant enough. For instance, the HEPA filters inside our media air cleaner are literally $32 a piece, so I suppose I’m glad they’re supposed to last for 6 months in total. I can’t imagine paying that much money every several to 6 weeks to have a scrub media air cleaner. The HEPA filters in our media air cleaner are dense so they don’t get plugged nearly as fast as a normal Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C filter in an cooling system or gas furnace. All of these filters are annoyingly extravagant in the long run. I don’t have the luxury of having a normal set of lungs that could handle leaving an a/c filter inside the machine for several months or longer enjoy some people try to do. In the end, our air quality suffers heavily if I’m not replacing our HEPA as well as Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C filters when the manufacturer suggests.
