Can I vacuum the air filter on my projector in order to prolong it's life?

I have a Sony Bravia vpl-aw15 front projector, and a "replace filter" message just came on screen. I removed the filter and it was disgusting.
Unfortunately, I just discovered while looking online that the replacement filters are $65.00us! Way too much money with Christmas in a few days.
So I carefully removed the filter and used my vacuum cleaner to thoroughly suck as much dust as possible from the filter (it was fairly clean at this point) and replaced it. The projector seemed to accept this as a replacement and it's still working.
Has anybody else done this, will my only TV explode or something?
Does anybody know where to get replacment filters for less money? This cost seems incredibly expensive for a bit of cloth in a plastic frame!

Yes, you can vacuum it. I would do it regularly, its very important to keep it clean, it also helps it from overheating.
