AirThreds: First Machine Washable Home Air Filter

AirThreds is a reusable & machine washable HVAC filter.

An estimated 82% of Americans do not change their furnace filter monthly as recommended. The majority of these people are not even aware that their HVAC system needs monthly maintenance. People are spending more time at home than ever before, and it becomes even more vital to pay attention to the quality of air in your home.

AirThreds is the first machine washable and dryer friendly furnace air filter. It’s the perfect solution for ensuring great air quality in your home and preventing the myriad of problems that come with leaving contaminants to roam free in your home air.

Why is regular furnace filter change important?

As your furnace filter gets dirtier, more indoor air pollutants are left to circulate freely in the house. These contaminants can cause a variety of health problems ranging from mild allergies to life-threatening conditions.

If the cost implication is the main reason why you’re not changing your filter as recommended, it will interest you to know that leaving the filter unchanged is even more expensive in the long run. Dirty filters also lead to higher energy bills, and they could lead to mechanical faults in your HVAC system. Thus, ensuring you have a clean furnace filter at all times is vital to maintaining your health and that of your HVAC system.

The AirThreds advantage

Unlike traditional filters, AirThreds is designed to be reusable, long-lasting, and environmentally friendly. Here are some of the reasons why you should switch to AirThreds:

Saves cost

Buying a new filter every month could be cost-intensive. Being machine washable and reusable, AirThreds would save you from adding yet another item to an already long list of monthly bills. Importantly, the filter is long-lasting and would help preserve the lifespan of your HVAC system.

Environmentally friendly

If the fact that you have to spend money on a new furnace filter is not worrying enough, you should at least feel concerned about their impact on the environment. Conventional furnace filters are made from non-recyclable materials that end up in local landfills, thus hurting the environment. AirThreds, on the other hand, is fabricated from polyester and is 100% reusable.

Effectively reduce allergens and unpleasant odors

AirThreds is specifically made from electrostatic material. The filter’s polyester 3D mesh attracts and captures the majority of pollen, dust mites, large dust particles, mold, common allergens, and pet dander. Depending on where you live, a monthly wash is enough to make your filter new again. The manufacturers promise to send a magnetic reminder board that tells you when it’s time for the next wash.

Easy to use

AirThreds couldn’t be any easier to fix into or remove from your furnace. All you have to do is slide the filter over the frame, switch your old disposable filter, and you can start enjoying the AirThread advantage. AirThreds comes in 18 different sizes to suit a wide range of HVAC systems. The manufacturers will allow users who purchased the wrong size to switch to another size within 30 days of purchase.
