About This Product

Nordic Pure MERV 12 Pleated AC Furnace Air Filters provide exceptional filtration for both home and commercial environments. MERV 12 furnace filters are comparable to HVAC filters with the rating of MPR 1500-1900. Nordic Pure furnace air filters are manufactured using a heavy duty, moisture resistant beverage board frame. As with all Nordic Pure furnace air filters, the material is electrostatically charged to attract unwanted particles. The media used will not promote the growth of bacteria or mold on the air filter. For fresh, clean air in your home and office, it is important to regularly change your AC filter, especially during home improvements. We recommend changing your HVAC furnace filter every 1-3 months, depending on your unique home or office environment. People with pets or those who suffer from allergies should change their A/C air filters more often. Replacing your air filter regularly not only improves indoor air quality, it helps your HVAC unit perform more efficiently. Important Note: Almost all air condition filters have a different Actual Size than Nominal Size printed on the air conditioning filter. It is best to measure the exact size of your A/C filter and compare it to our Actual Size to be sure your HVAC replacement filter fits!


  • Nominal Size: 20 x 20 x 2, Actual Size: 19 1/2 x 19 1/2 x 1 3/4 (19.5 x 19.5 x 1.75)
  • Nordic Pure recommends changing 2" air filters every 30-90 days
  • Hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, and electrostatic filter media. Moisture resistant frame.
  • Ideal for high efficiency air filtration and will help those with moderate allergies and asthma.
  • Nordic Pure MERV 12 is equivalent to MPR 1500-1900
  • Made with MERV rated synthetic poly blend pleated media

Q:will 20 x 20 x 2 work instead of 20 x 20 x 1?

1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Use the manufacturer's spec filter size. If you need to find out what this is, you can google the make, model and serial number of the HVAC unit, or you can measure the intake are where the filter goes. If it requires a 1 inch filter, the 2 inch will not fit.

        The filter was too small to replace the original 16x16x2 filter in my new house as when the AC turn up that 1 inch difference meant that it was sucked up causing a banging noise in my bedroom. Bought one some from different vendor with actual size and no more banging. The filter behind this one is the new one. This is a great price if you’re not worried about banging etc.

          Real or Knock Off?
          The filters are the right size and the outside of the box shows Nordic Pure MERV 12. However, the filters are not individually packaged and do not show a brand or MERV rating, so I don't know if I got the real thing or something of lesser quality. I will use them but will not order again.

          My air has never been so clean, My house smelled...
          My air has never been so clean, My house smelled like dodo from all of the old newspapers, beer cans and cat poop i have been hoarding for the past 20 years. Now when I climb in my front door over the piles of trash I smell fresh clean air instead of death. Thank you Home Depot.

          No larger effective areas than HDX 1" ones
          I used to buy HDX 1", and wanted to try these 2" ones hoping for larger effective area for filtering, i.e., with tight pleats. Disappointed that these pleats are wide and irregular. No good, either the quality or value. Delivered to the wrong addr at the first time, and CS refunded after I contacted them. Then had to order again. I'll prob. go back to the HDX 1" ones.

            I’m not sure if the product measurements are correct; I took a 3 inch wide filter out of my unit; and as they are hard to find, I bought these 2 inch. They were way too big; I could not close the grill over my AC unit without damaging it. Just thought I would throw it out there; I did not measure these to find their actual measurements; in hindsight I should have.

            Very convenient way to replace my air filters.
