So far, so good!


The weather has been so mild since I received the filter that it hasn't been necessary for the AC or heater! I'll update once the weather changes; it's supposed to be in the 80's over the next few days so the AC will probably kick on. I will say that it was a breeze to install! It fit perfectly and I have an unusual size (16x16).

BOTTOM LINE: Yes, I recommend this product
