Using a washable air filter

Have you ever given a washable air filter try? I have, and at first I wasn’t going to give it a watchful eye, but ultimately I decided to because I wanted to go and try something different, especially after using disposable air filters all my life in our heating, ventilation and A/C unit. In our circle of friends, washable air filters were all that people were talking about. Three people were spreading word around as a life hack, and they are saying that it was much easier to use a washable air filter than to use a disposable air filter. I thought about it and I was wondering if using a washable air filter was worth the price, or would it be cheaper to continue to buy the disposable air filters? There’s only one way to find out, and so I went down to our local heating and AC dealer to compare some prices. What I found was that the washable air filters were definitely a little bit more costly, however this was no big deal because they were reusable and could be used for many years. I decided that I would go ahead and give it a try and I picked one up when I was there at the heating and AC business. When I put it in there and a few months later it was dirty, I realized it was time to clean it. It was kind of quick to clean because it was far easier than I expected it to be. All I had to do was take a vacuum cleaner and suck all the dirt out of it, and it was good as new again. These washable filters really are great, and I want to continue using these instead of our disposable air filters from now on.
