Thread: Furnace Filters size

  1. #1

    Default Furnace Filters size

    Hello,
    I have a Honeywell hot air furnace that calls for a 16x25x4 size box filter.
    These filter are not usually available from either my local Home Depot or Lowes. Also, they cost over $25 dollars each.

    Maybe a frugal type question, but could I use the 1" filters instead, and find a easy way to hold it in.

    Thanks
    Walter

    You're only gonna change it once a year. Is 25 bucks really too much?

    Consider it cheap insurance to protect your unit. The one for my Carrier HVAC system is about $75 and I change it in the spring and fall. When I have it serviced each year the inside burners, etc are nice and clean. Probably a little over kill on my part, but the unit looks and runs like new....and it helps to keep my utility costs down as a bonus.

    Looking around the web,$25 doesnt seem like an unreasonable price if its a real OEM Honeywell filter.At the popular "auction site" I see some after market ones for as little as 15 and maybe less if you buy a multiple quantity,of course,shipping charges must be taken into account.
    You might check with your local Honeywell distributor and see what they can offer for a cash and carry price.There are still some supply houses that will sell to non-trade customers.
