AFB is a leading manufacturer of air filters, made in a US factory and shipped direct to your door. AirFilterBuy: Breathe Better!
The AFB Gold MERV 11 furnace / air filter is recommended for home or business owners that have pets as it is specifically designed to filter particles as tiny as one micron, including pet dander, lint & dust, dust mite debris, pollen and mold spores, auto emissions & smoke. While not quite hospital grade like our AFB Platinum (which we recommend for asthma and allergy sufferers) our AFB Gold is a premium quality product that is an upgrade from the AFB Silver and significantly more effective than a standard fiberglass filter.
Whenever you are choosing an air filter, make sure that you compare the nominal and actual size of the furnace filter that you are replacing. In this case, the ‘nominal’ size of the filter is 14x20x1 while the ‘actual’ size of the filter is 13.5 x 19.5. Generally, the nominal size is rounded and in bigger print while the actual size is in smaller print and in parenthesis to the side.
The AFB Gold MERV 11 filter is designed to last 3 months, or 3 times the average fiberglass filter. The filters ship directly from the manufacturer to your doorstep, allowing AFB the ability to offer a premium product at a reasonable price.
Each quantity purchased is for a pack of 4 filters.
Note that AFB filters come in AFB Bronze (Merv 6), AFB Silver (Merv 8), AFB Gold (Merv 11), and AFB Platinum (Merv 13). The most commonly used filter for home or business use is the AFB Silver (Merv 8). If you have pets or allergies we recommend the AFB Gold (Merv 11). If you have asthma or other respiratory illness, we recommend the AFB Platinum (Merv 13).

Great filters at a good price from a super company with outstanding customer service... As soon as these are gone, I'll be back for another order... THANKS.
These seem sturdy and arrived well-packaged; however, they seem to clog up much quicker than expected. I'm currently changing them out every three weeks, not three months. I will switch back to MERV8. One one hand, it's filtering the air better, but on the other it is putting too much strain on my system and we had a noticeable loss of air pressure coming out the vents around the house. Because of this, I'm still leaving a 4 star review as they're good value and seem to do their job, it's just not the right product for my system.
I am very happy with this purchase. Not only is it less expensive, but it is actually more quiet than the other filters I have purchased at the local "home improvement" store. Why, you ask? Because it actually fits! You see, when the filter does not fit properly there is additional airflow that goes around the filter creating a sort of whirring noise, not to mention the sound of the filter being sucked up and dropping when the cycle starts and finishes. These filters fit perfectly and the noise level has noticeably dropped. I have only had the filter in for about a week, so I cannot comment on how they are over the long term, but the noise reduction alone will likely keep me purchasing from this supplier.
