    Opt for a Filtrete™ Pollen & Pet Dander OR Allergen Defense OR Allergen Defense Extra OR Allergen Reduction Air Filter to transform your central heating and cooling system into a whole-home air filtration operation.

    • Exclusive Filtrete™ Brand 3-in-1 technology from 3M traps unwanted air particles, letting cleaner air flow through

    • For optimal performance of your heating & cooling system or HVAC system, change your home air filter at least every 90 days for 1” filters, and at least every 12 months for 4” and 5” filters.
    • For residential use only
    • The higher the MPR, the more microparticles - such as pollen, pet dander, smoke, bacteria and viruses - your filter will capture from the air passing through it
    • A dirty filter will slow down air flow and make the system work harder to keep you warm or cool - wasting energy. Sign-up for a filter change reminder program that works for you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Choice of MERV ratings and size Nominal size of HVAC filters is a problem for some users. The problem is made worse by the lack of standardization in return air grille sizes. For example, filter manufacturers print 18"X18" on a filter, but the nominal size can make it impossible to use them in a return air grille, if the builder bought cheap odd-size grilles. For the past two decades, I have had no problem with the Filtrete size in my house. Not true for other filters I tried. I have a large return air grille that I have to tape two 18X18 together to use. 18X36 is not a common size to find and I do not think Filtrete makes this size (with 18X24 the largest I could find). Once I bought another big-name brand. After taping the two together, the length of the filter was too short.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from doesn't fit I have no idea what to do with this BETTER AND HIGHER END filter... this is the first time a 16 x 20 x 1 inch filter purchased at the local hardware store DOESN'T FIT. I have an AC unit with a more precise slot in which to insert the filter. No matter how I try, it just won't slide down the frame as required. I can't return the unit for a lower grade filter because I didn't save the receipt.
