Washable furnace air filters?
Over the years, my washable furnace air filter has saved me hundreds of dollars. The coils for the a/c and heat exchanger have remained clean, so it must be working, at least pretty well. It's getting harder to give it a really good cleaning and was considering replacement. Anyone have any recommendations? Thoughts, pro/con?
Not all washable filters are life time
Depending upon the type of media on the inside of your air filter, it may or may not be a life time filter.
Polyester will clog up over time and can not be cleaned. Foam will deteriorate. You should use a mild degreaser and rinse with water. You may need to use a hose that has strong pressure. The spray nozzle in the sink may not have enough pressure to push the trapped particulate out.
Hope this helps!
