Money Saver: Save on your electricity / air conditioning bills

One of my challenges are monthly chores, the kind that occur every 30 days. Daily and weekly chores are much easier to habitualize.

One chore, struck me as very important and would help save on our electircal bill, as well as improve the quality of air in our home:

Changing HVAC filters regularly. I usually by 3 month filters and change them every 2 months or so. I'd like to find a wholesale source to buy them in bulk.

Frequent changes allow the returns to collect and send air back to your hvac unit for chilling and recirculation. Blockages and obstruction (dirt, lint and dust), make it much harder to do.

This is a task I need to put into MS Outlook to automatically remind myself to do.

Have a wonderful day,

Thanks for the reminder. Had a huge electric bill last time around and think the A/C had something to do with it.
