Central Air Filters

What brand are you using? I had the #10 home debot Honeywell filters for a few years and they worked pretty well but only for a few days before I noticed the air quality was the same as with the old filter. Recently switched to 3M Filtrete which looks like better quality and I feel like it filters better after a week. It's supposed to be replaced after 90 days like the Honeywell filter. What filter do you recommend?

I not too picky, 3M is a good name, I donít like going three months so Iím constantly checking the element. If it looks too gray I change it.

Yeah I changed mine after 2 months. I have the reminders set up in my Nest app but I feel like it's too long between reminders even though it takes into account usage.

How wide are your filters? These are the ones we use. These are for a full HVAC system

I change mine every month during the winter since we are home more and have pets. I also use 3M. My filter size is 20x20x1 so the shallow depth make them clog fairly fast. I use the top grade ones, I think around $30 per filtet when bought multi pack.

Mine are 20x25x1. I got the 1900 rated filters but I've seen 2200 and 2800. The 1900 are the highest that are widely available with same day pickup and not crazy expensive as the higher ones can cost $50-$70 for 1 filter. I paid maybe $19-20 for 1 filter and 50 percent off second filter.

Didn't know they made car filters. I've used micron cabin air filters in the past as they are oem for many car brands
