I recently took a chance on buying washable air filters for our central heating and cooling system.
Had been hearing about washable air filters for a few years now and was truly curious to try them out! Well, the 1s that I obtained 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 proper air filters for our central heating and cooling system. I am not sure if maybe it was the brand of washable air filters that I obtained being the issue or if washable air filters are just 1 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 we will guess 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 our 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 our 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.
