How well does this filter perform after it has been washed; ie. does it retain it's electrostatic charge?
Asked by: majic
This filter acquires it’s electrostatic charge triboelectrically. Triboelectrics is at play, when your hair becomes statically charged, when you comb it with a plastic comb, or when you take off a wool sweater and you hear a crackling sound and, in the dark, see tiny sparks. The charge is accumulated, when air moves trough the layers plastic mesh. The charge on the plastic then attracts and captures the tiny dust particles, even though they might based on size simply pass through. This helps with air flow.

How long will it last?

I am wanting to know if this is a more ecological and economical choice or not ! Thank you, Denise
Asked by: hapsgirl
Typically Yes. Just by price alone a filter can be about $3 each and at 4 changes a year, it will pay back in about 7 years. Then, if you factor in your mileage at $0.55/mile, it saves resources going to the store. There is the amount of garbage that this will replace, i.e. 29 filters over 7 years. Finally, your time is valuable. I would prefer to wash or vacuum this every three months rather than face the store crowd to replace it.

12 in. x 24 in. x 1 in. Washable Reusable FPR 4 Air Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product The problem with disposable filters are they are flimsy and/or you need to replace the filter but have forgotten to get new ones... And your unit continues to run with a dirty filter way longer than it should. I researched online for the best reusable air filter and decided on this one. Found the filter at HD and ordered it. It is sturdy, well-made, traps dirt, dust, and particles as is designed to do so. The contaminates in the air are well contained in this filter. It is easily removed and washes up to complete cleanliness, then once air dried, it is just as easily reinserted for continued use. Initially, I removed and cleaned it weekly for the first month (until the bulk contaminates were trapped). I've checked it weekly and it has not required another cleaning after the first month, to date. So, I conclude it will require a three-month cleaning schedule for routine maintenance. The dust and contaminate particles in my home have been most significantly reduced. My home environment and lungs are healthier and happy! I absolutely recommend this air filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality filter - HVAC tech recommended! I purchased this filter as I was tired of running out to the store for disposables. When it arrived, I was surprised by how well it was built. The frame is extremely sturdy and the filter is made of high quality materials. The best part is that I had an HVAC guy over to my house, as we are finishing the basement, and without even seeing this filter, he recommended that I stop using cardboard filters and get something that allows for more air flow. He was impressed when I showed him the filter I had just purchased. It is exactly what he was suggesting improve my air conditioning. I have already rinsed out the filter once and was surprised by how dirty the water was when it came out of the holes in the frame. This filter will pay for itself in no time and it has a lifetime warranty. My smartest purchase of the year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for keeping the air in your A/C system... Great product for keeping the air in your A/C system clean and free of dust! No need to run to the store, when the filter is full of dust. Just rinse it of in your utility sink or bath tub. Pays for itself in less than two years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from in store order I have already used this brand in my old airconditioning and heating unit. It outlasted both and was over twenty years old and still working when we replaced both our air and heating units this year. The secret to it lasting so long has partly to do with a periodic cleaning at least twice a year ( more often as needed) by just cleaning it with soap and water and taking a hose and washing it outside.
