Recommendations for air filters?

Hi y’all! As several of you know, I have recently moved into our first lake house in addition to I am undoubtedly excited about all of the lessons of homeownership that I guess I’m about to learn! Some of them are self-explanatory- cooking, cleaning, maintaining a schedule.

Some are more challenging, replacing our entire Heating in addition to Air Conditioning system within the first month of living here (yes, that happened), finding the best Wi-Fi provider, mowing the grass.

Some jobs are just sort of mundane or in-between. The mundane job that I’m currently working on is replacing our air filter. I have been seeing a lot online about washable air filters in addition to I’ll admit I’m pretty intrigued by the method of not having to run to the store to update our air filter every month or every other month. I guess some people keep many air filters in their lake house however I don’t have a lot of square footage in addition to I’m not absolutely interested in keeping a bunch of filters shoved in a closet. Has anyone had any experience with washable air filters? Do they work and the official air filters? How often do you have to scrub the washable air filters? Whether washable or not, which air filters are the best balance for your indoor air quality? I guess that some are great for indoor air quality but slow the air flow while others are great for air flow but worse for indoor air quality. If anyone has any recommendations on this topic of air filters in addition to indoor air quality, I would absolutely appreciate your input.
