You don’t have to use disposable air filters for your heating and air conditioning system? Is true! You can use a washable air filter.
How does a washable filter work you might wonder? Well it’s exactly what it sounds like. With a washable air filter instead of having to throw it away after a single use like you would with a disposable air filter you can still clean it off and reuse it. The way you clean your washable air filter is usually by vacuuming out all of the dirt and debris that was caught in the air filter, or you can wash it with clean water and then dry it and then replace it back in your HVAC system. Using a washable air filter can be much more cost-effective than if you were to continue to use disposable air filters. For the simple reason that a washable air filter can be reused because it’s disposable, and you’re going to need to continually replace it. I have to admit that I was really skeptical about the uses of washable air filters. After using washable air filters for a few months now I have to say that I like them much better and they have definitely won me over. Now every time I go to my heating and air conditioning business I always pick up a couple washable air filters and they last me months! I try to stay on top of my HVAC care so because of that I change my air filters every 3 months. Every 3 months my air filters get washed however I probably could wash them a little bit sooner than that considering that I have pets and kids in my house and it can get pretty dirty.
