One of the leading cut to fit filter furnace filters is the 3M Filtrete Micro Allergen Hammock Filter. This filter has a rating of MPR 1000 and lasts for up to 3 months. They capture the larger particles in the air such as dust, pollen and mold spores. This filter will also help to capture the small particles like smoke and pet dander. The 3M Filtrete Hammock Filter comes in a size of 30" x 60".
Another great Cut to Fit Filter is the Flanders Precisionaire Spun Glass Hammock Roll Media. This Flanders Precisionaire filter is a roll that is 20 feet long. It's easy to use and you will get quite a few filters out of 1 roll. Another nice thing is it comes in a dispenser box and doesn't take up to much room during storage.
Cut to Fit Hammock filters make changing your furnace filter an easy task. Grab some scissors and cut to your exact size. It's as if you are making your own custom filter for you furnace or air conditioner.

You can get a disposable pleated filter that you change every 90 days (recommended) or basic fiberglass that you should change about every 30 days. The efficiency changes over time so it's key to make sure you change your filter within the recommended time frame. As the filters collect all the debris and trap it from recirculating they become loaded and the available openings for air become smaller. The result is better filtration but less air movement which in turn makes your system work harder. Regular filter changes keep your system operating at peak efficiency.
A good way to help remember when to change your filter is at the beginning of every season. Also consider changing your filter more frequently if you or a family member has asthma, allergies or any other type of lung disease. This is just an easy step to creating a healthier you, and what better time to start that then now.
