Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Was shopping Amazon for furnace filters. Went to the Filtrete page, a brand that I know that has a size that I need. Had some time, so decided to browse the reviews before ordering.
Good move, as I learned a lot I'd never bothered to know. Such as that "MERV8" is an industry rating that allows the maker to claim its product "captures and reduces ragweed pollen, mold spores, dust mite debris and pet dander," all things my house needs to be rid of. I also learned you can buy filters with higher MERV ratings that remove more debris, but, as a result, clog sooner, need changing more often and cost more. All that considered, I decided to stick with MERV8s.
Another reviewer pointed out that NordicPure filters with the same MERV rating as the Filtretes were currently available on Amazon at a significantly lower price. Which is how I arrived at this page and why, less than 24 hours later, a big boxful of Nordic filters arrived at my house.
I have been buying these for several years now, for two furnaces. They work very well in a home with several kids and hairy pets; I change them out monthly and invariably lots of fine pet hair, dust, and other gunk is trapped in them that we'd otherwise be recirculating.
The box of 12 is very sturdy (for shipping) and contains the individual filters unwrapped, which I like to reduce packaging waste. The individual filters are also quite robust, and can stand being pushed into tight filter rails.
The price is quite a bit lower than comparable (MERV8) filters I find in the big box stores. I intend to keep buying these, and would highly recommend them.
I have noticed a little less reliance on taking claritin every morning, so for that I am eternally grateful. I tried a MERV 13 air filter and it took a considerable drain on the efficiency of our central AC unit, though the filter itself looked like it wouldn't let anything through. This filter is less fluffy, gets dirty a bit quicker, but actually fits out AC and allows it to function closer to normal. Compared to the synthetic fiber cheapo filters, this thing is extraordinary. I have not had to vacuum the fins of the unit behind the filter since I started using better filters over a year ago. Whereas the cheap filters would require me to clean them every month.
