Your furnace air filters are responsible for ventilating and filtering all of the air that travels through your home’s heating system. As your furnace creates heat, your furnace air filters trap and remove all dust, debris, and particles from the air. During the peak heating season of the year, your heating system may require a furnace air filter change as frequently as once every month. If you are planning on performing this service for your heating system, here are the steps of correctly inserting a furnace air filter.
Locate the Filter
In order to change your furnace filter, you must first locate the position of the existing filter. To find your furnace filter box, you can inspect your furnace air ducts. Typically the filter box is located adjacent to one of these ducts. Once you have found your filter box, you will be ready to remove the old filter.
Take Out the Old Filter
The next step of changing a furnace filter is to remove the old filter. To take the filter out, you can open the filter box. The filter will usually slide right out of the box. Once the filter is removed, you can inspect it for signs of debris and buildup.
Insert the New Filter
To properly insert the new filter, you should locate the airflow arrows. These arrows will indicate the proper orientation of the filter. Next, use these arrows to guide you as you slide the new filter into place. The filter should glide easily into position.

Have you been sniffing and sneezing your way through your days lately? It might not be a springtime cold—it could be allergies instead. Allergy season is in full swing in Berkeley, and you might not be safe from allergens even while you’re inside your own home. Your indoor air quality could be aggravating your allergies, especially if you haven’t had a duct cleaning recently. Allergens such as dust, dirt, mold, pollen, and pet dander can build up in your ductwork and recirculate throughout your home. You can improve your indoor air quality with duct cleaning, and simple steps like regular vacuuming and eliminating smoking inside. Check out this Infographic to learn more about how to improve the indoor air quality in your Berkeley home. Please share this important information with your friends and family!
Gray water is defined as any water that is produced by a home, except for water that comes from the toilet. For example, your sink and shower each produce gray water. This water can be reused for other purposes, such as irrigating a garden. Although gray water is not clean enough to drink, it can provide an efficient alternative to fresh water in your yard. For more information about gray water, watch this video clip.

Wow! Just had Mr. Gustavo Cruz from Albert Nahman Plumbing out to fix my temperamental kitchen faucet, and not only did he diagnose and fix the problem in less than an hour, but he was as considerate and polite as all get-out! He was clearly happy to be working for an excellent company, too. Could not have had a better experience. A++More
