Peoria, AZ, June 23, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Two Arizona residents have teamed up to launch a Kickstarter campaign aimed at lowering your energy bills. John Pollock of Peoria, and Mike Mayer of Glendale have developed a very easy to use and low cost device that alerts you when air filters need to be changed based on how dirty they are versus a fixed duration. The product is called FilterWatch and the company claims households will save as much as 20% on their HVAC energy bill and they back up their claim with studies by Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Old Dominion University.
"The adage of changing your air filter every 30 or 90 days as written on the air filter, is wasting energy and money for most households," says Pollock. "A better way is to change your filter at 20% restricted OR 30 days especially during high usage seasons when your HVAC system operates 5 to 10 times longer."
Not all households are the same, more children, more pets and the location of the filter system all contribute to varying rates of filter clogging. FilterWatch eliminates the need for the homeowner to remember to change the HVAC air filter more often during peak usage seasons. The summers are brutal to energy consumption in the southern states but the northern winters consume just as much energy.
The Kickstarter campaign launched just 2 days ago and has already generated over 8% of the funding goal. To find out more, visit www.kickstarter.com and search for FilterWatch.
