Default With the COVID-19 virus spreading rapidly throughout the world,

Just got an info letter from with the following info..

Keep your filters clean - Dust and other particles can accumulate in your unitís filters. With the water that air conditioners naturally produce, these can be a brewing home for dangerous bacteria. 5 minutes is all it takes to clean the filters and get rid of this health hazard. And doing this regularly will also save you 5%-10% on your energy usage.

If there is a chance you have some active COVID-19 in your dusty filter,
is it really a good idea to clean it?

I normally use a vacuum cleaner and then wash the filters in the sink..

Is that really going to be safe to handle? I don't think so..

My hobby is installing & trying to repair mini-splits
