Do you use an air purifier? If you answered yes its most likely your air purifier relies on a filter. Some air purifier comes with new filters, but a lot still rely on traditional filters. Like most people, we like to see dirty filters as that means we have trapped the dirty air. But when an air filter gets clogged whether in a heating or cooling system it’s not okay.
When an air filter is clogged, it needs to be replaced. As when its clogged an air filter is unable to do its air purifying job. It’s quite simple to buy a new filter but has you considered using a washable filter. This is because washable air filters have some benefits.
The primary benefit of a washable filter is that can be washed, and therefore the need to buy a filter is no longer required. Hence you can save money in the long term. The unit cost of a washable air filter will cost more than the regular filter, but you will need to see long term to reap the benefits. A normal replacement filter will last you say six months and will cost from $20 to $50 depending on size and brand. So over the years that cost can add up, by buying a washable filter you will save on the replacement cost.
Washable air filters can be used in air purifiers as well as most filter appliances in the house such as heating and cooling systems as well as furnaces. They can save time compared to a replaceable filter, but many people do not believe this. This will depend on the brand you will be using, but filters are just slotted into the appliance and do not need any special installation. A washable filter will require only to be wiped with a damp cloth or washed with a tap or hose.
Another consideration that most people do not see when they want to save time is buying the new replaceable air filter. Buying a replacement for your purifier or other appliance can be quite difficult as not all local shops will stock all the sizes of filters that you may require. You can alternatively order online but that can take time and when it arrives there is no guarantee it will fit. Whereas washable filters are brought once, and there is no requirement to order again.
Another plus point of any washable air filter is the cost saving you will get over the years. One of the costs of a washable filter will be more expensive than a replaceable filter and at times be double, but as a replacement filter will only last at most a year. You will be able to cover your initial cost within the first two years. Therefore a washable air filter has large cost savings compared.
