There are lots of hard-working things in our homes equipped with filters that trap dust balls, pollen and many other impurities. Some filters, such as those in dehumidifiers and dryers, are reusable and must be cleared regularly; others, such as refrigerator and HVAC, are disposable and need to be replaced on a regular basis. But with our hectic lives, changing a filter can get pushed to the bottom of a jammed to-do list. This can result in costly and unhealthy consequences.
"Six Filters in Your Home You May Be Forgetting to Replace or Clean " is from the February 14, 2017 Lifestyle section of The Washington Post. It was written by Jura Koncius and narrated by Sam Scholl.
