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.

At first installation it appeared to be too long, but giving it a strong nudge set it in place. Then I had to work hard to get it back out and I installed gorilla glue tape on the top and bottom leaving a length of tape on the front, rolled back on itself, providing a way to pull both tabs in order to pull the unit back out for cleaning.
Well my husband informed me that I measured wrong (oops) but it fit anyway. Love the product! Love this concept! My a/c seems happier too so my husband is happy. On the customer service side, they couldn't be nicer. Great experience.
The filter fit my units perfectly and the service provide on ordering the filters were excellent.
Workmanship and quality of the air filters are top notch. As for how they run with my AC unit only time will tell but I’m very happy.
It took almost 20 days for my filter to arrive and after few tries, the filter fitted good in my filter box. It has been working well so far. The workmanship of this filter is good.
