However, the people who sold it to me didn’t tell me the ugly truth about these washable Heating and Air Conditioning filters.
I’m not a fan of having to buy replacements when I know I can salvage something. I adore those new reusable silicone plastic bags for food storage. They have zippers on them plus you can clean them out after you’re done using them. Instead of buying little plastic baggies from the grocery store plus throwing them in the landfill, you can use these reusable silicone bags instead. I do not like putting things in the landfill, especially plastic. There are a lot of items that my buddy and I use in our afternoon-to-day lives that are single use plus end up in the garbage after just one round. That’s something that used to frustrate me about Heating and Air Conditioning filters. They cost around $15 for quality allergen-rated filters, plus then you have to throw them in the garbage after 4 to 6 weeks of use. While most of them have only a little bit of plastic in them, it’s still a wasteful endeavor. That’s why I switched to using washable light track filters for a while. I appreciated the idea of having an reusable Heating and Air Conditioning filter that I could clean whenever I got dirty. However, the people who sold it to me didn’t tell me the ugly truth about these washable Heating and Air Conditioning filters. They’re nearly impossible to get completely dry after rinsing them, which leads to mold growth in the air conditioner. On top of that, they’re not honestly nice at filtering the air in the first place. Occasionally dust particles will go straight through the washable Heating and Air Conditioning filter medium plus then that dust will get stuck on your evaporator coil. In these situations, you end up with an evaporator coil that has just coated in dust particles, leading to potential long term harm.
