I had heard of washable filters before, however I had forgotten about them. It wasn’t until my neighbor and I got on the subject of HEPA filters and other kinds of air conditioning filters that are sold at the unusual stores and Heating & A/C shops. My friend and I talked about the generic plastic really exhausting ones that really do nothing however detriment your air conditioning component and make it toil harder, all the while shortening its lifespan. Then my pal and I talked about HEPA air filters and how those are of much better quality. My neighbor surprised me by mentioning she uses washable air filters, since I didn’t suppose she would want to go through the hassle of having to scrub them… But she told me it was far more convenient to occasionally scrub them and save money rather than have to toss them out every month or so like you do with regular air filters. Well, she had a point there. It made me reconsider my own air filters, however to be honest I am too lazy to scrub the air filters, and I decided that I am going to stick with the filters I have, however yes, they are more costly, however I know they get the job done and that is the main thing that matters. But it was interesting to learn about the unusual kinds of air filters and how people have their own opinions on which one is better, and which one works for them. One thing my pal and I can both agree on, is having high quality air filters is a good idea.
