I’m a fan of Filtrete and have been using these filters for years. Keep in mind the particular filter mentioned above with the 1500 MPR is typically used during the winter months - you don’t want to run these during the warm months as the A/C is cranking. I use the 300 MPR during the Spring, 600 MPR in the Summer, and 1085 MPR in the Fall. Lowe’s typically has the 4 season 16X25x1 pack for $39.99 and I will pick up individual 600 MPR during the dead of winter from Walmart when they’re dirt cheap. The packaging will state lasts up to 3 months but you should be checking on your filter more often during the warmer months.
Rona has it on sale this week for $27.98
4 filters, one for each season. It comes with a 300, 600, 1000 and 1500 filter.

Years ago neither did I and didn’t realize why the A/C worked as hard as it did and struggled to reach and hold the temperature during the hot months (as mentioned by someone else earlier). Then discovered the difference running 1500 vs 600 during the hot months and never looked back.

Just as a reference, I ordered this 6-pack from Amazon in 2016 and paid $59.99. Seems like theres pretty good inflation going on here.

Also good advice on using different filters for different seasons. I hadn't considered that. My dads furnace cant handle these higher MERV filters and the heat exchange will over-heat and shutdown the burners, causing his furnace to cycle quite a bit in the winter.

Not true, same filter on amazon deal is $15 less. This is a decent deal for a good filter
https://furnacefilters.ca/collections/1 ... f-12-72-00

$75 pickup for a case of 12 for MERV 13. MERV 11 is $58 for a case of 12. Amazon is only a case of 6 for $80. What am I missing here? either option shipped (ontario/canada) is still better than the amazon deal.

I also saw a new kind of filter the other day which is also on sale. A smart filter which you connect to your phone. I would never buy one, but it's kinda neat. I know some people out there want smart everything for their home.

They say to change your filter every 3 months. However, in some cases you should be changing it more often, and sometimes you probably could have waited longer then 3 months. This filter will tell you.

Comparing it to the multi pack it seems like a lot of money. But if you buy just one at a time this one is actually not that much more.

On sale $20.99

Home Depot has this special buy in the flyer this week for $39.94 :

Filtrete 16-inch x 25-inch x 1-inch Allergen Defense MPR 1000 Micro Allergen Filtrete Furnace Filter (4-pack).

It's equivalent to merv11. Works out to $10/filter. Usually these are $15-20 each.

Hi there,

I used these for those Sharp Air purifier from those good days at FutureShop... Cut it in half and put one on top another and there, a cheap replacement filter. :D

It's not really the best price, but if you need them now, it's a good value...

Dust particles are typically born around halloween therefore they are relatively small and you need the higher merv rated filters over the winter to trap the little guys. Going into spring and then into summer they have grown enough for the lower rated merv filters to trap them.

fwiw, I don't live in a completely sealed house. I also open the windows when it's cool in the evening and morning some days through the summer so the deal with filtering allergens out is redundant. I don't have a newer furnace. this entire filter busine$$ is just creative marketing. IMO .. about as useful as a cab filter in a vehicle.

I always try to find something like these and change every other (or 3 months)

If you are in the GTA https://furnacefilters.ca is the better deal.
I buy it from these guys too, my HVAC guy said, these are better than the 3M ones, only if i keep a discipline to replace it every month, it's better for us and the furnace.

3 months replacement for the 3M, makes the furnace works much harder....i was told

How do they compare to these ones? https://www.amazon.ca/Nordic-16x25x1M8- ... way&sr=8-6
I also buy the Nordic air filters. I used Filtrete before but because it's a 3M product its overpriced. I have not noticed any difference in air quality in going from Filtrete to Nordic.

Bought the Nordic MERV12 air filters pack of 6 for about 60$. Very happy.

Those with older furnaces, it is recommended to use a MERV 8 as maximum. Too hard on the furnace otherwise. Keep this in mind when buying filters.

Would love no dust in the house with the higher rated ones but not at the expense of the furnace.

If anyone sees a better price kindly let us know, they are cheaper than the furnace.ca ones it appears and well reviewed. There are the Aerostar ones as well.
