Arrived in a timely manor, packaged well and in good condition. Was also at the lowest price I could find. Very happy with the simple ordering process. Will need to check prices, but will most likely be ordering here again.
The filter I need is hard to find, so I was pleased that a google search revealed a company that had it in stock AND offered it at $15 cheaper than my previous supplier. On top of that, I received the filters in 3 days!
After looking on Amazon, various local sources (found nothing), and a handful of sparse e-commerce dealers I found this vendor to have a specialized filter (wasn't disclosed when I purchased the HVAC unit!) at a reasonable price. I was very skeptical and also concerned that (1) the item price listed would change drastically with shipping costs or "other fees". False - I received free shipping and from order to my home 3 business days.
(2) that I was being scammed by either a non-OEM filter, or a fake business: FALSE!
(3) that the quality of the filter would somehow be compromised. FALSE!
Installed perfectly and our HVAC and air cleaner are happy again! I'll be a repeat customer!
I bought a 2 pack of these 18 months ago, same vendor, $30 less. Now same vendor via Amazon, $80 (I think) more than direct from Atomic. Even though all three instances were Atomic Filters. Lesson learned. Actually, lesson confirmed.
This pleated filter is a MERV 11 filter efficiency. MERV, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, indicates when a filter will be least efficient. So, the higher the MERV rating, the more efficient the filter. Most fiberglass spun filters, such as those found in your local grocery store, are usually only a MERV 1 or MERV 2. These filters are generally to used to protect the HVAC system in your home and do little to protect your family's indoor air quality. A pleated filter with a MERV rating of 7 to 13 is recommended to protect the air quality in your home. A minimum of MERV 11 to MERV 13 filters are recommended for allergy suffers. Clogged or dirty air filters can affect the efficiency and air flow of your heating and cooling system, causing it to work harder to produce the same air flow, while costing you more money!
These MERV 11 air filters efficiently reduce pollen, dust, pet dander, and other fibers from air in your home.

An additional benefit of this HVAC air filter in your home will also extend the life of your heating and cooling system by making it work more efficiently. These MERV 11 filters contain pleats which creates a greater surface area to catch airborne particles and decrease the airflow drag helping your system to operate more efficiently .

These HVAC filters should be changed every 1 to 3 months for optimum performance.
