Wondering what everyone thinks of adding air filtration to their central air, and if the allergens in Seattle are worth the investment? Curious to ...

Ryan Bruss You want to make sure to change the filters every 90 days. When I lived in Texas ours were really gross after just a few months. I would hate to have been breathing all that in unnecessarily.
Adam Doppelt Yes, you should use filters and spend a few minutes picking the right one. You want to get a filter that can handle Seattle's wildfire smoke, and if you spend a bit more it'll even filter out many viruses. Never thought that would be important...

Higher MERV numbers will cost a bit more and put a bit more strain to your HVAC. I would categorize filters as generally pretty cheap, though, and modern HVAC should be able to handle the load. Last summer we put in Nordic Pure MERV 12 for wildfire smoke. This summer we are using MERV 14 to minimize virus exposure. I had to order those directly from Nordic Pure since Amazon didn't carry our filter size.

Also see our post on wildfire smoke which has some info on standalone filters. We use Coway units downstairs.

Josh Barnard We used TapRoot Tree Care for some tree pruning and were really happy with them; not sure how much they do with fruit tree care but definitely work a call!
Adam Doppelt Following... I have a tree that needs attention and our tree guy is more of a chainsaw kinda person
Liz Pearce I reached out to the Master Gardener I've been working with (Peter Lavagnino) to get his recommendations, and he had three: Legendary Tree, Renaissance Tree Care, an Tolt Tree Care.

Robert Crimmins Hey @amd, I just called and Blue Flame answered the phone. I suppose maybe they got acquired?
Meredith Fife Hi Robert, I am not sure what phone number we had for Energy Works, but I have corrected it in our system. Try this number- 425.409.5661. I apologize for the confusion. Thanks for the call out!
Robert Crimmins Thanks, @meredf , I called the new number. Found out that the guy who founded Blue Flame sold it and started a new company, Energy Works. I set up an site visit for next week.

Marston Gould Hello Kristy. Having owned several older homes myself (including my current 1927) I very, very highly recommend Hector Samayoa. Hector's team is not only extremely professional, they do all the little things that many, many other painters won't. First off, no sprays. Never. They only brush and role. You will notice the difference, believe me. Second off, the prep they do to tapping everything off carefully is second to none. I can say without a doubt that our last home sold for about 25% above list almost completely due to the paint job that Hector did inside and out. His number is: (206) 432-1748
Kristy Morrison Thank you @dangerbruss and @Marston
