Fact...media filters are expensive. Solution...buy one that can be cleaned and reused for years. This filter pays for itself in just a few months. Our popular washable, electrostatic panel filters have now been converted into a thick frame filter to fit your Honeywell, Amana, American Standard, Aprilaire, Bryant, Carrier, Skuttle, Trane or Trion units. Boasting the same specs as our GOLD filter, our MEDIA-TYPE filter has a low air resistance rating and a high dust arrestance rating. As shown in the pictures, the filter consists of 2 inches of filter media in a 4, 5, or 6 inch frame. Why is the media thinner than the frame? Because the polypropylene and polyester media must be compacted to a specific density to obtain it's electrostatic properties. Also, if the filter media was 4 inches thick, it would be too restrictive to airflow and extremely hard to clean. Please note that these filters have a nominal and an exact (or actual) size. For example, Aprilaire makes a 20x25x6 filter for it's Spaceguard 2200 / 201. However, this filter does not actually measure 20x25x6 inches. It is exactly 19-3/4 x 24-1/4 x 6 inches. So, we recommend that you physically measure your current filter and then find that size in the drop-down menu above. If your size is not listed, please choose the Custom option and enter the size you need in the box. We can make any size in 1/8 inch increments.
This filter comes in 3 inch to 6-5/8 inch thickness.

MEDIA-TYPE - Replacement Washable, Permanent, Electrostatic A/C Furnace Filter
I have a filter that typically has to be special ordered and it costs anywhere between $40-$50 per filter. For less than the price of 3 filters, I have one one that can be cleaned and reused!!! I wish I would have come across this company years ago.
So far so good...
