Costco online has 3M 2200 Series Filtrete Filter 4-Pack for $45.99 thats $11.50+tax each. Shipping and handling is included. MPR 2200 might only need to be changed once every 3 Months or so. From my experience this is a pretty good deal.


Various filter sizes available.

A 1" thick filter should be changed every month. Buying a thicker more material filter doesn't change that. It just creates more workload for your furnace

exactly. all these overpriced filters are a giant money grab and totally unnecessary for 99% of homes. CHanging the filter more often is way better than pissing money away on these...

Are people really buying a four pack of filters for $45? Buy cheap and replace every month

Yep. I have two filters to change. I do it the first day of every month and it costs me about $1.50. Never had any issues.

if you can see through the filter, the bad stuff just goes right through, you're wasting $1.50, as opposed to spending $5 wisely, on two filters of some quality.

I did a ton of research on these a few months ago and you can find different people insisting on basically every angle with these. Buy the best, buy the worst, etc etc. Everyone claims to be an expert.

I have my vents on the ceilings and I've never had any issues with them. I just change them the first of each month. Haven't had any issues with anything floating up past the filter. You would know if it wasn't doing a good job because your HVAC system would freeze up due to lack of proper air circulation. No reason to pay crazy amounts of $ for something that you can get for 75 cents. And if they cost that much to buy, how much do you suppose they cost to make?

I always have had this question-
If the higher density whatever FPR or other ratings that they follow are better than why not have a cheap filter and let it accumulate the additional particles which will clog them and inherently increase the FPR rating.

I always have the same question with water filters as well. A clogged water filter should be able to filter better because the filter media is the same and now with the additional particles it trapped the water has to go through even narrower openings

The inexpensive ones have two layers and you change them every 30 days. I prefer it to do it this way anyway. If you get a 90 day filter, then you still have to deal with the vent covers that get dust building up on them. I just clean them off when I pop a new filter in. Plus I have 2 cats and 2 dogs, so I would rather not wait that long anyway.
