HEPA filters are the ideal HVAC filters. HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air and these filters clear the air of many air-borne pathogens. So if you suffer from Allergies or get sick frequently this might be the filter for you. Even with such a great filter, it is recommended to change every 1 to 3 months.
Washable filters are a great cost-effective option. As long as it’s maintained it can last the life of your HVAC unit. The most important thing to remember with a washable filter you need to allow it to dry fully or you run the risk of mold.
