Aprilaire Media Whole House Filter

Rate this post

Question:
I am considering replacing my Aprilaire media whole house filter with anAprilAire Space-Gard Replacement 2200 electronic filter.  I will be replacing my heat pump within the next few months and would probably buy a Carrier electronic filter.

I am currently using the new upgraded 15 MERV April Air filter. My service technician recently told me that based on his experience, the high efficiency media filters do a better job of keeping the inside of the air handler cleaner than the electronic filters and the media filters require far less maintenance.

He recommended that I continue using the media filter and not replace it with an electronic filter. Your comments are very much appreciated.

I would agree with your service technician 100%. In my experience, electronic air cleaners are over rated. They may be  efficient at stopping smaller dust particles but are not as good at stopping larger dust particles.

Best,



sig

p.s. For best results use media type filters such as Aprilaire or many of the other pleated air filters sold by Nordic Pure.
