I recently took a chance on buying washable air filters for my central heating and air conditioning system.
Had been hearing about washable air filters for a few years now and was very curious to try them out! Well, the ones that I bought were not so great.
When I went to wash them they flaked apart and eventually just ripped. I ended up having to go out and buy some regular air filters for my central heating and air conditioning system. I am not sure if maybe it was the brand of washable air filters that I bought being the issue or if washable air filters are just one big load of crap all together. I will try the top of the line HEPA washable air filters sometime soon. But I will buy the smallest amount possible to try. Then, if these top of the line HEPA washable air filters do the same thing then I will know for sure that washable air filters are a lie and just a way to milk more money out of you for nothing. The verdict is still out on the concept of washable air filters in my opinion. But like I said, once I buy those HEPA air filters I will be able to find out either way. For now I am using my standard air filters that have been doing me just fine for ages. I am going to stick with these for a while before I go and try the HEPA brand washable air filters.
