Furnace Filters By Filtrete Reviewed

Looking For Hard To Find Furnace Filters?

Do you have trouble finding the size of furnace filter that you need? Let me review some possibilities that you might not have thought of. Recently, I have been on a quest to find the right size of filter required for my Dad's furnace. Let me tell you, I was beginning to think it might be an impossible task!

I visited every single big box store in my area looking for the size that I needed. First of all, it is amazing at how many sizes they did carry but none of them had the size that Dad's furnace requires. I would find ones that were close but not quite the right measurements. Now, just like with a lot of things in life, close only counts in the game of horseshoes. To say that I was beginning to get frustrated would be putting it mildly. I mean, come on, it isn't like Dad has a furnace that is rare. It is a well known brand for goodness sake!

A Light Bulb Moment in My Search

About the time that I decided that if nothing else, I was going to take the vacuum sweeper and try to clean the existing filter my brain cells kicked and the proverbial light came on in the gray matter of my head. "Why don't you look to see if they can be purchased online, Bev?" said that little voice that only I can hear. 

Sure enough, when I searched on my favorite website for ordering things that I need; the filters that I have spent a month looking for were there. For goodness sake, why didn't I think to look there first? It would have saved me time in the car, gas and a whole lot of frustration if I had. 

Anyway, my point this morning is; if you have a furnace filter that seems to be a less than standard size; take a look online. I'll just bet that you will be able to find the one you need. The bonus is, it can be delivered right to your door. There is a possibility that you might need to order more than one. The size I needed came in a package of six. I couldn't seem to purchase just one. Actually, that turns out to be a bonus in my mind, too. Now, I'll have extras and will be ready when it is time to change the filter in the future. That isn't such a bad thing, now is it?

  1. Good to know there is a handy online site where one can obtain hard-to-find items. Nothing more frustrating than trying to find a needed item not regularly carried locally. I live in a small town, so many things are not nearby without driving a ways to a bigger shopping area. This makes online shopping even more helpful.

  2. I completely understand the dilemma! Countless times, I have done exactly the same thing only to realize whatever item I was seeking, could be found at my fingertips. It often seems like planned obsolescence to me and I very much resent that practice, especially on something as expensive, yet necessary, as a furnace. I am really glad you found the needed filters. I have no doubt you will be glad you have a surplus on hand. Thanks for the tip and reminder to check online for those hard to find supplies.

  3. I buy about 90% of anything I need online. I do still go to the grocery store but there are times I have ordered those delivered too!. It is so much easier just to shop online. Of course, I was never too fond of shopping anyway. Thanks for a good review.

  6. Glad you were able to find what you needed. We get our furnace safety checked and new filters for every change in season. It's overkill, but works for us who have allergies and such other ailments. Online is the way to go!
