To continue this week's discussion about air filtration, today we're going to talk about electrostatic air filters. Because of the differences in the way these filters operate and need to be maintained, it's best to know all the details about them before you decide to install one in your home.
As you saw above, there are many great advantages of using an electrostatic air filter. However, there are a few things you should know about taking care of them before you decide to install one. First, it can be very difficult to properly clean many electrostatic filters. Furthermore, many homeowners report that certain electrostatic filters are difficult to disassemble and reassemble in order to clean them. As a result, the maintenance of these filters can be more of an annoyance than it's worth for some homeowners.
It's also important to note that electrostatic filters can be damaged if they are cleaned improperly or from years of wear and tear (depending on the quality of the filter). If this happens, you'll have to replace the filter, which will end up being more expensive than changing a normal filter or the media in a whole-house air cleaner.
