Well, she had a point there
I had heard of washable filters before, but I had forgotten about them. It wasn’t until my friend & I got on the subject of HEPA filters & other kinds of a/c filters that are sold at the odd stores & Heating & Air Conditioning shops. We talked about the generic plastic honestly bad ones that honestly do nothing but disfigurement your air conditioner component & make it labor harder, all the while shortening its lifespan. Then my pal and I talked about HEPA air filters & how those are of much better quality. My friend surprised me by mentioning she uses washable air filters, since I didn’t think she would want to go through the hassle of having to clean them. But she told me it was far more convenient to periodically clean them & save money rather than have to toss them out every month or so like you do with respected air filters. Well, she had a point there. It made me reconsider my own air filters, but to be fair I am too lazy to clean the air filters, & I decided that I am going to stick with the filters I have, and yes, they are more extravagant, but I know they get the task done & that is the main thing that matters. But it was interesting to learn about the odd kinds of air filters & how people have their own opinions on which one is better, & which one works for them. One thing my pal and I can both agree on, is having high quality air filters is a nice idea.
