Review - TidyDocks Vent Filter
*I was not paid for this review! I received this product free of charge for my honest opinion!
Where I live, in central Texas, cedar season is at it's peak right now. You can literally see the cedar pollen floating around outside it's that bad. And when cedar season isn't occurring , we have high mold or ragweed, or some other allergy going on all the time. I guess that's the price to pay for living in the country- extreme allergies! A great way to help combat the pollen is to use vent filters. Since I'm tired of inadvertently crying from allergies every day, I was thrilled to be offered to review TidyDocks vent filters.
I wasn't too sure exactly which size to get for my vents, so I got the 8x18 filter to try out. The package included the filter, three magnetic strips and a small tube of super glue. Installation was very simple. I placed the filter over the vent I wanted it on and marked the edges with a marker. I then cut it to shape. Then, I cut the magnetic strips to the exact lengths of the sides. You have to remember to factor in the corners! It took most of two strips to cover all the edges. The strips are more magnetic on one side than the other. The less magnetic side has a small white stripe on it. I used the supplied tube of super glue to attach the magnetic strips to the filter edges, and almost immediately they were dry and ready to put on the vent.
The filter is made of a polypropylene mesh in a soft PVC grid device that is fully washable. That's a huge bonus so you're not always having to buy new filters. The filter is meant to be placed over forced air HVAC vents and cold air returns. The vent filters significantly reduce the amount of dust, dirt and pet hair from being pulled into the HVAC system. They are also great for bathroom exhaust fans by helping to keep out all the dirt and other things that may clog it, making you remove the whole vent cover to clean the fan constantly. Also, if you live in the country and have a lot of critters and bugs, they can help prevent them from moving around through your vents from room to room.
The TidyDocks vent filters are easy to install and easy to clean. I've only been using it for a few days, but already it feels like it's a little clearer and easier to breathe in my house.
