How would you like to save a ton of money?
Just like printer companies sell their printers at a bargain and then charge a fortune for the ink cartridges, air-cleaner manufacturers employ the same tactics with their disposable filters. Check their prices. OUCH! $30.00 to $60.00. For years I've been using the same pleated, high-efficiency filters that I use in our central heat and air system. I buy them by the case lot(12), online from ACE Hardware for $4.00 each (free shipping to store) and cut them to fit the Hunter Air Purifier. ACE runs frequent sales.
SEE UPLOADED IMAGE of filter (14 1/4" X 16") cut and ready to install. Use utility scissors to cut through the wire mesh backing and border the filter with duct tape on each side to replace the cardboard that was cut away. I use 16X25 ACE Pleated filters so I have enough left over for smaller areas like return air vents in a whole-house system.

At Amazon.Com's current price of $9.92 for a carbon pre filter, that's $119.16 per year for each air cleaner if you change prefilters once a month. What if you run multiple units? Two units will cost you $238.43 just for carbon prefilters for one year. 5StarFilter offers a 100' X 24.5" roll for $293.00 which will make 154 filters. That price includes FedEx home delivery. That's enough prefilters for a 6-year supply for 2 units and you pay only $1.90 for each carbon prefilter. Buying 154 prefilters one at a time will cost you $1,529.00. That's a savings of $1,236 over 6 years.
All you have to do is cut off a 15 1/2 inch section. Cut that section in half lengthwise and you have 2 filters. The only downside is that some carbon particles will crumble off when cutting. Cut over newspaper or either outside. It's worth it for me.

Of all the air cleaners running in our home, this Hunter is the least expensive to run 24 X 7 because I can make alternative filters. This is not the case with the large barrel-shaped cleaners that circulate air 360 degrees. When the barrel-shaped air cleaners die, I replace them with these Hunter wall-huggers.
When my back is against the wall, I don't go to the mall. I look for a bargain. That usually begins with Amazon.Com.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE BASEMENTS:
While we're on the subject of air filters, please allow me to share an experiment I began 5 years ago. We have a rather large basement most of which is below ground level. This necessitates constant air circulation to eliminate mold and milder even with a dehumidifier. The summer of 2013 has been one of the wettest in history for the eastern USA which has significantly exacerbated this problem.
Lasko makes a 16" reversible window fan. On the back side which faces outward, I tape a 20" X 25" inch ACE A/C filter, bought by the case, onto the unit with duct tape. This size pleated filter fits this fan perfectly. I run the fan in reverse pulling the air into the filter. Since the basement is primarily for recreation, workshop, utility and storage, noise is not a concern. I replace the filter every 3 months. I am amazed at the amount of airborne particles it collects. My first fan lasted 4 years running on medium 24 X 7 before the motor burned out. When I went inside the fan, the motor was caked in a heavy layer of debris that peeled off like felt. No wonder it had burned out.
Here's what I found out. On the exhaust side of the fan, the air does not blow straight out. It blows out in a very wide angle at almost 170 degrees. Around the motor, there is about a 3" wide area shaped like a donut where a vortex is created and air is sucked into the fan around the motor. I never would have thought that the exhaust side of a fan would suck air in. It does. I cut a donut shaped piece of foam filter, bought in bulk, shaped like a donut, and placed it around the motor. It stays in place. I didn't even have to tape it. So for, the motor is staying clean.
As another experiment, I cut a 20" X 25" piece of carbon pre-filter material from a bulk roll and taped it over the ACE A/C filter. There is no more basement order whatsoever.
You'll have to use your imagination for creating a support for this industrial air cleaner, which costs less than $100.00. I wedged one side in between a support column and the lower part of the basement steps and it stays in place like a charm and is easy to move for cleaning.
Once a year, I take the fan outside and clean the fan blades and motor with an air hose.
Breathe better and spend less. Live long, healthy and happy.
I have a couple issues, though. First, it is practically impossible to get genuine replacement carbon filters, so you end up getting generic cut-to-fit filters which are of obviously lower quality than the one it ships with.
Second, I bought two competing purifiers at the same time, and changed their filters at the same time; the other purifier's carbon filter was completely uniformly covered with dust and pet hair. This unit's carbon filter had areas that were much more thickly covered and areas that were lightly covered. That tells me that the design of the grille is pushing more air through some areas of the carbon filter than others. The engineer in me suspects that'll lead to occlusion (blocking) of the air flow faster in dusty environments, and it's just generally less well-designed than the Fellowes unit I got.
Finally, the controller on the unit still thought the carbon filter was 20% good, and it was already blocked enough (see above nitpick) that the fan was having to work harder and releasing a "hot electronics" smell. While there was no failure, this doesn't bode well for the durability of the unit if you're not right on the ball with changing carbon filters, and maybe changing them early.
It does work well, though, it's not too noisy, and it hasn't broken yet. Replacement filters are a bit expensive.
I am glad that the air cleaner is grabbing so much of the dust, less in our lungs.
I also move the air cleaner from room to room as I clean which helps a lot.
The noise levels for us is super quiet!!! We have a loud house with kids and dogs and even on 3 the air cleaner is quiet as the activity of the house drowns out most other noise. On setting one, its hardly noticeable even in a quiet room at night. It has a pleasant white noise for sleeping when its on one.
This air cleaner is like a helping hand for my dust issues. I am glad to have it. I paid 150 on sale and it was worth it!!!
The replacement filters are reasonable too and you can cut down high quality furnace filters for it too. So there are filter options if your creative. Vacuuming the filters regularly will help add life to them. This air cleaner wont break the bank with expensive filter problems.
Its also 2.2 amps. Less energy use-age than a cheap box fan. Most cleaners like the big round ones often suck electric like a pig making them costly on your bill. This one is energy efficient.
I wanted an energy efficient air cleaner that could grab the floating dust in a large room, have filters I could afford to replace, and that was affordable. I found the perfect one that fit my needs after a lot of research. Nothing else fit all my critera. This one is the best. [...]
