Actual Size of Filter: 15-1/2 x 24-1/2 x 3/4
Electrostatic filter captures large airborne particles like household dust, mold spores, and pollen
Outperforms comparable fiberglass, washable and disposable filters
Hypoallergenic and antimicrobial pleated electrostatical filter material
Made in the USA
Nordic Pure's air filters are pleated and electro statically charged and have a high efficiency rating. The electrostatic charge of the air filters works as a magnet and draw airborne particles to them. This helps protect your family from pollen, fine dust, tobacco and cooking smoke, airborne plant spores, bacteria and some viruses. Our non-woven synthetic filter media will not support the growth of mold or bacteria, keeping your home healthier. Air filters are ranked in a minimum efficiency rating value (MERV) system. The higher the MERV rating, the better the air filter can filter out all airborne particulates. Remember not all HVAC systems can handle the higher MERV ratings. Filters that have received a rating of MERV 7-12 are great for all HVAC systems. However, MERV ratings of 13-16 are able to remove and capture smaller particle sizes even before the air filter starts to become dirty and are recommended for newer units. We manufacture most any size disposable home air filter in 1/2-Inch 1-Inch, 2-Inch, 4-Inch, 5-Inch and 6-Inch thickness. The printed size on the side of your air filters may be the nominal size so it is best to physically measure your filters with a ruler or tape to get the EXACT measurements of your home air filters within 1/8 of an inch on the length and width. Consult your HVAC system's operating manual for information. Nordic Pure recommends that you replace your filters every 1 to 6 months. That way, our filters will help your HVAC system to continue running to its best capacity. Nordic Pure has been manufacturing air filters since 1960 at our plant in Oklahoma. We are proud to be offering a MADE IN THE USA product.

This was my first box of Nordic Pure filters and I'm happy to say it won't be my last. I'm using the MERV 7 and it's just the right amount of filtration. For most homeowners, this rating will be just fine and get the particulate matter that you are most concerned about. As a former HVAC technician, I'd seen enough systems crippled by customers using filters that provided too much restriction which not only impeded air flow, but increased dramatically the risk of permanent damage to equipment. A few of the ratings have complained about the size. I've found that these do fit rather tightly in my return grills, but that's a minor "con" that is far outweighed by the filtering capacity and performance. For the sake of experiment, I went one month past the normal replacement period of 90 days (under average homeowner use) and found the filtration to still be quite decent. The price per box is also very competitive with other brands. As an added bonus, they're made in the USA. For...
I'd say these are just ok.
General background: My air-handler is only three years old, all ducting and system is new. I bought these to be used in a heat-pump forced air system.
Pros: The filters came in a nice box and were not crushed or dented on arrival. The filters are very sturdy -- they have a fairly hefty metal mesh back and the cardboard is sturdy. Once I put them in the filter box they had little to no deflection while the system is running.
Cons: The nominal size on these is slightly smaller than filters I have found in the big box stores. (could be a plus if you find other filters have a super tight fit) These load up with dust very quick.
Superficial (ha): The blue color is kinda neat for a pleated filter.
Long Version: I've been trying a bunch of different brands of filters to see which one works best with my system and is cost effective. There are very few filter reviews...
Our AC serviceman recommended these MERV 7 filters. He cautioned us that the higher rated MERV filters put more of a strain on the unit, as it has to pull harder to move the air through. Higher rated MERV filters also need to be changed more frequently to avoid putting additional strain on the unit, as fine dust collects. He also stressed the importance of changing the filter every 30 days. We feel like these filters help keep dust out of our indoor air.
I can see that these are made a little better than another kind we had previously tried. The wire reinforcement in the pleats is strong and does a good job of keeping the pleats in shape. If you hold one of these up to the light, you can see just a little bit of light shining through, but you can't actually see through it. That's one visual indication that it's going to filter fine dust without straining our AC/furnace unit. The cheaper-made filter brand also claimed to be MERV 7, but they were less substantial, shined...
