The Lowdown on Electrostatic Furnace Filters

There are many types of furnace filters on the market, ranging from disposable fiberglass filters to High Efficiency Particulate air filters. However, a growing number of eco- conscious consumers are making the switch from throwaway screens to electrostatic furnace filters. Also called electronic filters, electrostatic furnace filters are based on the principle of static electricity. When it comes to indoor air quality, an electrostatic filter works great. It provides cleaner air by trapping a large percentage of the debris floating in the air. These filters are also great at controlling bacteria, mold, viruses, and pollen that cause illness and allergies. While many people love electrostatic filters because they are efficient, the main reason that eco-conscious consumers love this type of filter is because it cuts down on waste. Unlike a replacement Honeywell air filter, an electrostatic or electronic filter is permanent. You don’t have to throw it away and purchase a new one. It’s easy to install and even easier to clean. To keep it clean and working properly, you simply remove it from the unit and wash the filter. We recommend cleaning the filter at least once a month during the heating season.
