Getting tired of wandering up and down the aisles of your hardware store looking for the air filters?

And then when you find them, do you know which one is the best one for your heating and cooling system or eliminates the most pollutants from the air in your home?

Below you will find all you need to know about the best air filters for your system and your wallet and the top three air filters for common HVAC systems, both residential and commercial.

Top 3 Air Filters and Things to Know

First, there are four types of air filters for your home or commercial property.

These are the most common: flat paneled fiberglass, pleated polyester, HEPA (high- efficiency particulate air), and aluminum mesh (reusable/washable).

Three things you want from your air filter:

There is also a rating system that HVAC contractors use (MERV) that will help you choose the correct filter type for the needs of your indoor air quality.

Allergies can make your home miserable enough. If you have a child with allergies or have them yourself, choose an air filter that accommodates those needs as it can make a big difference in the air quality.

Home Depot uses a different rating system: FPR system, which is based on filter performance used in heating and cooling repair.

Here are the top three air filters according to the FPR system:

  1. Honeywell Electrostatic-20 in. x 25 in. x 4 in. at $30.67 is the best buy for complete indoor air quality with replacement filters (2 pack) for $39.77
  2. NaturalAire-20 in. x 24 in. x 1 in. at $11.37 for one filter, or you can really stock up with a case of 12 for $119. 64 – now that’s a bargain
  3. True Blue-20 in. x 25 in. x 1 in. at $7.74 (3 pack), or larger systems (20 in. x 25 in. x 5 in.) for $24.99
