  • Filtrete Basic air filters have MERV 5 rating
  • The higher the MPR, the more microparticles - such as pollen, pet dander, smoke, bacteria and viruses - your filter will capture from the air passing through it
  • A dirty filter will slow down air flow and make the system work harder to keep you warm or cool - wasting energy. Sign-up for a filter change reminder program (www.filtrete.com/changereminders) that works for you!

Customer Reviews
Filtrete™ Basic Pleated Air Filter FBA00-H-3PK, 16 in x 20 in x 1 in (40,6 cm x 50,8 cm x 2,5 cm) is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not true to size I bought two different sizes (12x24x1 and 16x20x1). Both sizes are slightly larger than the size stated and will not fit in the openings. Very poor quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Restricted Air Flow Why is there so much cardboard restricting the airflow? I remove all crisscrossed cardboard from the middle of both sides and they work fine with better airflow. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from better air flow Installed this filter two weeks ago and have seen a definite improvement over the better rated ones, seems like my a/c has shorter run cycles and my house is as cool as before. I will use this level of filter from now on. Also the last two weeks we have had record setting temperatures almost each day. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good filters - people need to stop second guessing I've always wanted a decent filter that allowed for superior air flow after pleated filters pushed the old fiberglass filters out of the market. These excellent, inexpensive, free-flowing filters are perfect. Several reviews here are complaining about the airflow arrow being backwards. Just follow the installation instructions, don't second guess the engineers, and you'll be fine. I've been using these for years in my own home (two air handlers, four filters) and two rental units (one air handler each). Never had a problem. They work well, they're light but durable. And they definitely improve heating/cooling efficiency over the restrictive filters most people use now. Worth noting that studies done on HVAC air filtration show that no matter what kind of filter you use, you don't get most of the dust in your house anyway because it's resting on surfaces and embedded in carpets and pillows. So no matter how high a MERV rating you use, you end up breathing all the dust as you move around the house stirring it up before it ever gets near your filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter I have 3 pets and an old air system, so I have to change my filters quite a bit to keep from dust build up. Every time I change my filter I am so pleased with the amount of dust and dander the filter has collected and locked in. The air flow is quite, can’t hear it flowing through the filter. I am pleased with these filters. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Arrows! When I got home and prepared to replace the older filter, the instructions stated to put the filter in the grill, paying attention to the arrows, so that the air flow would be correct. Only one problem - THERE ARE NO ARROWS...ANYWHERE! Not on the packaging, not on the filter, on the sides or inside. So, I put it in the same way as the previous filter and I hope it's correct. But then again, how would I know?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Whistling noise Just like many of the other reviewers, the whistling noise has been unbelievable. We woke up to think something was seriously wrong with our unit. The filter is just so flimsy , allowing air to come in through the sides making the most annoying sound. Never again!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TOO much air resistance. Just replaced the Model 1085 filter with the basic. The basic didn't allow enough air flow to heat the house and trapped too much in the plenum. At first I thought the arrow was backwards with the air pulling the fabric away from the frame. The next week a cold snap came and the furnace ran a lot. the furnace would trip on over temperature before heating the house. After 2 days of resetting the furnace I went back to the 1085.
