Washable or reusable air filters are an excellent choice for those looking to save money and be more eco-friendly. These filters are usually made of woven polypropylene and are electrostatically charged to capture more particles than disposable fiberglass filters. They can be rinsed with water or vacuumed to remove any build-up of particles, and can last up to 10 years before needing to be replaced.
K&Nhousehold air filters use patented technology to help improve indoor air quality, and are washable and reusable for years.
The cost savings of using washable HVAC filters is still a great benefit. Watch our video overview to learn how easy it is to install, clean and reuse your K&N HVAC filter. If you want to save money, you can wash the washable filter yourself to avoid air quality issues. In general, disposable fiberglass heating, ventilation, and air conditioning filters are the most common and affordable type of oven filter, but they must be replaced periodically to maintain HVAC efficiency and air quality.
Permanent air filters save time and money by providing a washable alternative to disposable filters. Fresh air entering your home can't pass through dirty air filters, and the effects are evident through indoor air quality problems. The higher the MERV rating of the air filter, the smaller the particles it can capture, but the greater the effect it has on air flow. Cleaning the K&N washable air filter is as simple as removing the filter from its housing and spraying it onto the K&N household air filter cleaner (part number).
Each K&N washable household air filter is designed to fit directly into the heating and air conditioning filter slot just as easily as a typical disposable air filter, with several dimensions and sizes available for easy installation. The air filter you choose has a direct impact on the performance of your air conditioning system, since it is responsible for trapping all types of suspended particles in the air that can harm your health and damage expensive system components. Washable or reusable filters are more expensive than disposable fiberglass filters, but they are also more environmentally friendly. They are a great option for those looking to save money while also being mindful of their environmental impact.
