Aprilaire / Space-Gard #201 High Efficiency Filtering Media (10-Pack)
These are the original, OEM expandable "accordian" style, factory recommended replacement filters for the Aprilaire/Space-Gard Model 2200 and 2250 Air Cleaner. MERV 10 rated.
The filters ship like a collapsed accordian and are expanded into a plastic frame within the air cleaner cabinet. The filter is snapped into the plastic frame and held in place with existing your pleat spacers (NOT INCLUDED). Assembly instructions are printed on the product carton.
The air cleaner media in the Model 2200 can last from 6 months up to 2 years. If installed on a 5-ton system, in the presence of high concentration of particulate, or if the furnace fan is on continuously, it may be necessary to change the media more frequently. In any application, the life of the media is dependant upon the total volume of air being moved through it as well as the amount of particulate it is filtering.
Comments about Original Aprilaire #201 Filter For 2200 Air Cleaner, 10-Pack:
You must be very careful when removing the old filter because the plastic comb dividers can break - be sure and have a screw driver handy so that you can use it as a lever to pop the plastics clips off. I also would also suggest you read the install sheet and try and put both plastic dividers on at the same time and just slide one down. These filters are wonderful and they suggest that you change them every three months but my suggestion is every 2 months because when they start to get dirty they make your heater work harder which diminishes the life of you system...they are not cheap so the best price out there is the 10-pack that iaq.source offers.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Shaped like a collapsed accordion, these filters can be expanded into a plastic frame within the air cleaner cabinet.

Assembly instructions are printed on the product carton for ease of installation.
The air cleaner media for the Aprilaire 2200 filter is designed to last anywhere from as little as 6 months to up to 2 years. If installed into a 5-ton system, in the presence of high concentration of particulate, or if you keep the furnace fan on continuously, more frequent filter changes may be necessary due to degradation of the Aprilaire 201 filter media. In any application of this filter, the lifetime of the media is completely dependent upon the total volume of air being moved through it as well as the amount of particulate is filtering. A continuously running system filtering large quantities of particulate can decrease the length of use for the Aprilaire 2200 filter.
