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.
The Carrier FILXXCAR0024 compatible filter fits the Carrier FILCAB mechanical air cleaner, MPKA series and any other 24"L x 25"W x 5"T box filter. This media filter is a whole house filter which is attached to the HVAC system. It has a MERV 8 efficiency value, which indicates how minute the particles are that can be trapped by it. The higher the value, the smaller the size of particles filtered and higher the number of particles captured. It is 20 times more efficient at trapping particles than a fiberglass filter. This filter has a pleated rather than a flat surface, thereby increasing the surface area which further increases the number of contaminants it can capture. With a MERV 8 value, this filter traps airborne pollutants as small as 3.0 microns such as dust, pollen, dust mites, and animal dander while allowing a free flow of cleaner air. An additional benefit is that it will also extend the life of your heating and cooling system by making it work more efficiently by preventing the accumulation of particles that settle on the evaporator and condenser coils.
