How Does An Electrostatic Air Filter Work?
Electrostatic air filters clean the air by using static electricity – a safe, naturally occurring phenomenon. An electrostatic charge is generated by air flowing through a maze of static prone fibers.
The reason why they are effective is because of the polypropylene and polyurethane blend used for making the filtering materials. Separate layers of the filtration medium receive opposite charges. As a result, the filtration media can attract different airborne particles.
The air you breathe contains many irritants such as pollen, dust, bacteria, mold spores, pet dander and smoke. Most of these particles are smaller than ten microns. Your ac filter is an effective and efficient way to reduce the number of these particles in your air.
By sticking to these metal plates, they are eliminated from the air you breathe in. Airborne particles are attracted and held by the static charge until released by washing.

- Lifetime warranty
- High dust & particle holding capacity
How to Clean Electrostatic Air Filters
Cleaning is quick & easy
When cleaned as directed, your electrostatic air filter will give you many years of trouble-free use. Failure to properly clean the filter may lessen filter effectiveness, and as with any air filter, it is possible for an excessive dirt buildup to cause air flow resistance sufficient to damage other ventilation components. Depending on your specific situation the filter should be cleaned every 4-6 weeks.
- Simply remove the air filter.
- Flush with water in opposite direction of air flow arrows then rinse other side.
- Spray with special solution to remove stubborn stains.
- Rinse thoroughly to remove remaining dirt.
- Drain excess water, let air dry, and reinstall.
