I have tried all kinds of washable air filters for my central heating as well as air conditioning unit devices, as well as I have to say that I am totally not a fan of washable air filters.
Many others have raved about how superb they are, despite the fact that I just do not see all the hype.
The newer washable air filters I have tried all ended up flaking apart after a few washings. And I had finally also heard that they were supposed to last longer than that. Because of this fact as well as the fact that it is just too much hassle to keep having to wipe the air filters I will no longer use them. It is also something where I do not have time to mess with air filters to my central heating as well as air conditioning unit devices in this way. It is terrible enough that I forget periodically to change the typical air filters to my central heating as well as air conditioning unit device. I also do not want to be worrying about that extra step of having to wipe the washable air filters as well! It is kind of like smart thermostats. Many people also feel those are the best thing since sliced bread. While I feel smart thermostats are terrible as well as do not use or have one. I can now add washable air filters to that list of things related to my central heating as well as air conditioning unit devices that I do not like as well as will no longer buy or use. Washable air filters just are not all they are cracked up to be in my personal opinion on them all. I have tried enough to say this.
