Washable Furnace Filters

StigwortNovember 8, 2012

Rather than installing a LENNOX HCC20-28 HIGH CAPACITY AIRCLEANER; I found Permanent Washable Furnace Filters & Air Conditioner Filters. Is it advisable to go with a 1" washable filter rather than an 12-month 5" filter?

In my opinion the 5 inch media filter will perform better than a 1 inch disposable filter.

I agree.
I've never seen any washable filters that
worked as well as media filters.

supply ducts and return should be mastic
sealed so that no 'stuff' enters the
air stream.

best of luck.
