As for the carpet, I have removed all of it, now we are using only hardwood and we are putting tile in the bathrooms and utility areas. I do think my sinus problems have gotten better since we got rid of the carpet but I`m not sure that dust is my only problem...I just want to make sure that I`m as comfortable as possible.
I havent done much shopping around as far as the pleated filtering systems go but I think I would probably buy one of the more reputable units. That being said...can I purchase these replacment filters at my local Lowes or will I have to pay through the eye teeth at the HVAC supply house?
I`m just weighing out my options, I might as well spend the money on the new system because the wifey wouldnt let me get away with spending the money on my old cars anyway!!
