aren't these worse for your compressor (works them harder?)

Great deal! I loathe buying air filters, I typically forget about them, and don't ever see an advantage to buying a multipack, although this certainly provided the motivation needed.
Unfortunately, they were sold out/ out of stock of the 20x30 case that I needed also, so looks like I can only buy for our upstairs unit. Green for OP!

vickh said: aren't these worse for your compressor (works them harder?) † Probably. The filter rated FPR 7 is showing an equivalent MERV rating of 11 on the package. From what I've heard, and opinions are all over the place, that is the highest you would want in a system. I'm sticking with MERV 8 on the advice of my A/C installer and I have no idea what FPR number that is equivalent to.

Holy carp dustman!

I went with MERV 13 from Nordic Air. I don't trust Home Depot at all on this since they made up their own BS filter system to confuse the issue.

thanks got 2 years worth for $50 lol, Not sure if it matters the number if my windows are open 50% of the time... ITs just to keep dust out of air mixer unit.
Looks like a 12 pack to me, they have those FPR5 filters in other sizes too. I'm in for a pack of 16x20 for $23.86.

DannoE said: I believe that is a case of 6 2 packs. 12 total. Wow, looks like you're right. Very strangely worded, but I'm in for some. Thanks!

If you're one to leave your windows open, the only real reason to have a filter is to not damage your HVAC unit. Purchasing an expensive filter for your unit in those cases is really just throwing money away. I'd recommend going with a generic filter if you fit in that category or don't need the allergen reduction. They will still filter the air, but will just not get the finer particulates. Something like this†should do the trick for most of you, and save you lots of money in the long run. †

In for 1, thanks OP. Only about $9 more than yesterday. Decided the 2200's (special order) were just too much risk of an HVAC burnout... went with the 1900s despite my epic allergies.

The ones you linked to are ok but still allow a lot of dirt by that will build up in the HVAC system. My dad use to own his own HVAC business and I have opened up many air handlers and the coils were just covered. Even the system in my house I bought was clogged up and they had a clean changed the filter every month with the basic fiberglass ones.
