Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jemac Electrostatic Air Filter
I’ve had the electrostatic filter for about 2 years and like it a lot. Cleaning the filter does take some finesse and the right tools are needed to get the dirt and material from the filter.
First, vacuum with the hose brush to get the majority of material off the filter. Second, a swiffer used on the dry screen to remove any of the material that didn’t come off with the vacuum cleaner hose. Thirdly, either a soapy rinse or just a hot rinse to remove the rest of the material from the screen. I can now do the job in about 5-8 minutes if I work fast. After two years the filter still looks like new.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Does a great job
The filter was easy to cut to size and fit well after the cut. Cleans the air very well due to the amount of dirt on the filter each month. The best thing is the ease of cleaning, which was a little soap and garden hose. I highly recommend this product.

I have been looking for this type of product at Home Improvement stores and found it here at Home Depot, previously I was only able to find the washable filters from other on-line sites that I was not familiar with.
I like being able to wash out the filter & put it back in, reducing wasteful monthly filters. Also this type of filter seems to catch more dust than the cheaper filters.
The only drawback I can see for the future is that the plastic moulding frame around the filter seems weaker than the the other models that I have purchased with metal moulding frames, so future durability will need to be monitored. Otherwise the price for this model is about half of some of those other competitors.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Anteater Disappointing
I used this type of air filter in my old HVAC system, but when I had a new system installed, the installer used a pleated paper-like filter. Within a month, the pleated filter was full of dust and animal hair. However, I wanted to use a reusable filter, and bought two of these. After one month, I changed the filter, only to find it was almost clean and in near-original condition! What dust there was on the filter did not rinse off, and only sank into the fibers of the filter when rinsed. The instructions say that vacuuming the filter would damage it, so I didn't do that (although that is how I usually cleaned my old reusable filter). I ended up ordering a package of pleated filters, and have had much better results in collecting dust and such with it. In addition, my installer showed me how the reusable filters I had used in the past (basically identical to these), had allowed so much junk to get past the filter, that my attic was full of crud. He also said that the stuff that got past the filter was the reason my old HVAC system overheated and stopped working.
Pleated filters from now on!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by homeowner good filter one small problem
Only had the filter for one month, but have already seen a decrease in the dust in the house. The small problem was that my furnance pulled the filter out of the plastic frame. I was able to easily fix this by using two zip ties by runinng thru the filter and around the frame to hold it together. One on the top and the other on the bottom.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robert is it too good ?
A bit pricey - bought this because it comes with the frame. The service tech who cleaned the furnace said the filters are too good and can put strain on the blower - make sure you clean the filter regularly.
