    The filter on mine looks like some sort of wadding material in a metal frame.

    I take it outside every now and again and give it a good hosing.

    Not sure where you'd get a new one from though, a heating installation company may be able to point you in the right direction.
    Cheers,
    Anthony

    take it to a filter shop.

    To clean give it a vacuum.

    You can only hose wash the filter material so many times then it falls apart
    Usually held in a metal frame with a rubber bead strip and is easy to replace.
