Customer Reviews

Great Product as advertised

I had no trouble assembling this unit. It is a breeze! I was able to install it into our filter unit rather easily even though our unit is mounted sideways in a VERY tight space. I look forward to changing the filter next time without having to deal with the pleats and combs. I am going to try to buy one of these for my daughter when I find out if it available for her size filter unit.

Almost as quick as video

Real simpleto do. My suggestion eas to assemble on a workbench where you are at eyelevel. I also found it easier tio partially put filter into assembled holder and then slide into place -- there again easier to see how filter slides on, Good to get something as easy as this was.

Questions & Answers

The AprilAire 201 replacement filter on your website is listed as a MERV 10. Do you have a MERV16? What is the price and how do I order it?

by Paul B. on 03-19-2013

We do not have a Merv 16 for the aprilaire product. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

My model 2200 is 28 years old - - I believe that when I looked at this upgrade previously there was information that it would not work with my unit. Please advise.

by James E. on 10-12-2012

ON your unit, if the metal rails are installed, the upgrade kit will fit securely, however, before 1985, the majority of units were not installed with rails, in which case, you will need to secure the filter frame with sheet metal screws (instead of the rails)

I have an Aprilaire 2200 installed horizontally will the 1213 upgrade work as effectively in the horizontal orientation since it doesn't have the combs to keep it flat?

by Pat K. on 09-09-2012

Yes, this is designed for either orientation
