Superior Air Filter for Residential or Commercial Property
Hypoallergenic and antimicrobial pleated electrostatic filter material
Made in the USA
The Nordic Pure MERV 13 anti-allergen pleated air filter is the ideal filter to reduce airborne contaminants in your home or business. With each pass through your MERV 13 air filter, the air in your environment improves. This electrostatic air filter attracts and captures airborne dust, pollen, mold spores, pet dander, smog, dust mite debris, smoke and bacteria. The MERV 13 anti-allergen pleated air filter is made of synthetic material that will not support the growth of mold and bacteria. The MERV 13 high efficiency air filter will attract and capture the small, allergy-aggravating micro-particles that can cause your family discomfort. The Nordic Pure anti-allergen pleated air filter has a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value(MERV) of 13 which means that it will collect more than 90% of 1.0-10.0 microns of contaminants, and up to 95% of .30-1.0 microns of contaminants. Particles in indoor air are measured in microns, which are 1/1000 of a millimeter. A human hair is about 70 microns wide. The MERV 13 anti-allergen pleated air filter is comparable to a filter with a MPR rating of 2200 and is a great start to creating a healthy environment. Nordic Pure air filters have an actual size that is a fraction of an inch smaller than the nominal size. With the 4” and 5” air filters there is a wide variance between the nominal size and actual size. Almost ALL filters have a different actual size than the nominal size printed on the filter so it is best if you measure your filter for the EXACT size and compare it to our "Actual Size. This is why we ask you to measure your filter so you aren't surprised if the filter doesn't fit! Our MERV 13 four or five inch air filter should be changed at least every 6 months depending on your environment. Changing your air filter at the recommended time will help maintain a healthy environment as well as keeping your air conditioning and heating systems running efficiently.

These filters arrived quickly, in good packaging and were exactly as described. The filter material seems to be high quality. Having said that, when these run out, I will go back to using the "national brand" (threeM), because:
These filters are 3 5/8 inches wide (as stated in the description). I didn't really think about that when I ordered them - I thought they all must be that wide. But the national brand is actually 4 1/8" wide, which fits my furnace much better. Who would have thought that 4" can mean something different on each filter?
The filter material is packed a little more densely on the national brand (more folds per inch).
The national brand is $10 to $15 more expensive per filter. In my case, I think it's worth it. But if the the width of the Nordic Pure work well in your furnace, then I would say they are a good value.
I've had trouble with filters that were too large for the air passage, but after carefully checking the specs on these, ordered a few to try. We were pleased with the first purchase so ordered more. We are still very pleased with them both for the accurate size information plus they do a good job filtering. My wife mentioned the house shows less dust on horizontal surfaces with these filters compared to the previous ones we used. (Previous ones were a known brand name, not cheap ones.) My only complaint is really minor: they are shipped in a box that is much larger than the filters themselves so take up a lot of room when storing.
Choose a 4 star rating because you can always find a more expensive 'better' version of this filter. That being said, the value of this filter is top notch and I've been looking for a quality, reliable filter with a high MERV rating for quite sometime. Couldn't find this filter at any of the big box stores in our city. I've been using the same filter for over 1 year and am very happy with the results it produces. Don't look any further, buy 2 or more today.
