The air filters in my home were an item that never crossed my mind pre-Mrs. Green. Enter Russett Southwest. Now that we are a few years into the Mrs. Green journey, and I know that upper respiratory disease is the third highest cause of death in Pima County, they had my attention. Air filters started mattering to me. They don’t just filter out bits of pollen and dust that would otherwise circulate through the home and lower indoor air quality. Can you believe that they also provide a first line of defense against larger objects such as bits of loose insulation being pulled into the system where they could cause damage or present a fire risk? Whether you rent or own your home, I hope you will care enough about your health and about your air quality to join me. This show made possible due to the generous support of Russett Southwest.
