After hearing all my buddies talking about how amazing washable filters are, I decided to head down to the HVAC shop and see what I could find.
When an HVAC expert came to help me out, I told him I was looking for washable filters.
He asked if somebody recommended them to me, and I told him how it was only every single one of my buddies. He laughed and said that the washable filters have been growing in popularity and for good reason. The thing is, a lot of people are weary about filling the landfills with old air filters and would rather have something that lasts much longer and saves them money. He showed me the different washable filters and I was impressed how some of them had high MERV ratings. I decided to go for the more expensive ones that would keep my air quality great and would last for approximately 2 years with regular cleaning every single month. So far, the washable filter has been keeping the air quality nice in my home and I’m surprised at how easy the washable filter is to clean. When my buddies came over to see how I was liking my new air filter, they were amazed when I told them that the washable filter had a MERV 8 rating and it retained its MERV 8 rating even after being washed numerous times! The HVAC expert explained that the washable filter was able to achieve such outstanding air filtration because of the mechanical filtration it used instead of electrostatic. He told me these washable filters are the future!
