About This Product

Air-Care electrostatic, permanent, washable air filters are 10 times more efficient than a standard disposable filter. Air-Care Electrostatic air filters clean the air by using static electricity, a safe, naturally occurring phenomenon. When used correctly, they filter up to 94% of air particles down to 1 micron. Care is easy! Simply wash the filter every 1-3 months and put it back in place. Set recurring reminders to clean your filter by registering your filter using the QR code on the package or logging onto our site. The sturdy, galvanized steel frame, will not rust and will stand the test of time. By switching to a permanent electrostatic filter, the air inside your home will be cleaner and fresher and you will be helping to reduce landfill waste. Gain maximum efficiency by cleaning your filter with C.E.F Electrostatic Cleaner.


  • Air-Care filters contain an EPA registered anti-microbial material to inhibit mold and bacteria growth on the air filter surface
  • Cleans your air using static electricity whereby an electrostatic charge is generated by air flowing through a maze of static prone fibers which attract airborne particles, holding them by static charge until released by washing
  • Filters pollen, dust, pet dander, bacteria, smoke, mold spores, household dust, lint, smog particles, candle and more
  • No harmful ozone emission
  • Use Air-Care's proprietary C.E.F Electrostatic Air filter Cleaner (Model SACH 0062) and U.O.K. Ultra Odor Kill Spray(Model SACH0074) to clean the filter
  • Proudly Made in the USA
  • Eco- Friendly alternative to standard disposable filters

    Q:Is it safe for the home's environment, the functionality of the A/C system, and for the resident's health to leave the A/C system running without a filter in it for 30 minutes, after cleaning it and waiting for it to dry?

    Answer This Question

    A:  You can return you washed filter directly in to the return after washing. You can also allow it to dry completely and then place in the return. Having you system run without a filter for a few hours will not damage it.

      Q:I have 2 hvac returns in the ceiling, in which I currently use traditional paper filters. When replacing those filters, there are metal fingers on each side of the opening, which fit into the paper filter frame. How do I use a metal frame filter?

        Not true to size
        Installed and as soon as the A/C kicked off it began making a loud noise. Initially it took me a bit to figure out what was causing the noise. Quickly I figure out it was the filter. If you look at the picture the size says one thing and dimensions are another. Pretty disappointing as I was very excited to have it arrive, only to find out it wasnt true to size.

          The size did not fit even though the measurements were accurate. I had to use a cardboard fitting.The air quality in my house appears to be worse. Sneezing and itchy eyes.

              The filter did not fit the space, even though my original replacement filter was the same size. I had to return it.

              Order placed in store was incorrect however customer service was able to correct and send the right size quickly. Love the idea of not having to keep buying filters and instead wash this filter then reinstall. Works well with a few drops of scent oil to distribute throughout the house. Highly recommend.

              A durable replacement air filter. I was tired of the monthly costs of replacing the standard filter. I hose the metal ones out 2x a year, Spring and Fall. I find that it is usually every 10 years time to replace,
