I was chatting with the Mitsubishi Electric team at the Internation Builders Show when I ran into Corbett Lunsford.  He was about to give a presentation at the Aprilaire booth, which was on the opposite side of the show.  He knew where the booth was, and I planned on going there later that day, so I followed him there.

While I was at the booth waiting for Corbett's presentation, I was able to get a few interviews with some good information on filters and other Aprilaire products.  Here is a video that I created on why our standard filter for SawHorse clients is a MERV 13 or greater:

When you run the same circles, you are bound to run into each other at these events.

Even though the name of the group is #GreenInfluencerATL, we are influencing each other just as much as we are influencing our audiences.  That is the power of people sharing information and learning from each other's discoveries and mistakes.

What types of things do you all learn from your groups?

I took some notes and will post on it separately, but if all everyone learns are the 3 key considerations about air management, we will be in a better place:

Air has to be something we’re all thinking more about, not just those who already know more, because there's just too much work to be done for everyone to live in a healthier, more sustainable space.

1. Don’t bring bad stuff in - as a professional or occupant!
2. Ventilate
3. Keep it dry

Among so many other key thoughts, I appreciated Corbett mentioning that it's important to ventilate during construction, so you don't allow mold to grow and then have people move in. That happened to us, and it was very expensive to repair.

Hey #GreenInfluencerATL Members - Here's a post we wrote up on "Filtration and Airflow in Whole House HVAC Systems: Filter Cabinets and MERV Options" that includes these videos plus the one Matt recorded with Chris Howells at IBS. I have appreciated this recent great filtration content!
