Aprilaire 213 Pleated Filter Media
Shipping is Free if your order exceeds $50.00 and you live in the continental USA. For orders totaling under $50.00 the exact shipping cost and transit options are displayed on the shopping cart page.
The Aprilaire 213 pleated filter media is available for regular filter replacement in your high efficiency air cleaner. The filter is rated at MERV 13, based upon 1200 CFM. Detailed installation instructions are located on the back of the box. This filter slides onto the rails in your existing air cleaner cabinet.
The filter media cleans the air as it passes through your air cleaner, removing the harmful particles that circulate through your home. New filter media is crucial for maintaining air quality, and reducing the negative effects of allergens such as pollen, dust and pet dander.
The filter media is not cleanable and must be replaced a minimum of twice a year, once in the heating season and again in the cooling season. If your home only has heating, the filter must be replaced annually. Please note, if you have shedding pets, or live in a dusty environment, you will need to replace the filter media more often.
Failure to replace your filter can result in reduced heating and cooling efficiency, high energy bills, expensive repairs, or total equipment failure.
This new style filter media DOES NOT require the use of pleat spacers but DOES require you to have purchased the 1213 Upgrade Kit in order to install it in a model 2200 air cleaner. If you have the 2210 or 4200 air cleaner you do NOT need to purchase the Upgrade Kit.
Beginning fourth quarter 2014 staples have been added to improve adhesion during manufacturing. This has no impact on the efficiency or function of the filter. New filters will be phased in as inventory is depleted.
The manufacturer is sometimes referred to as April Aire, Aprilair, April Air but is correctly spelled Aprilaire. Aprilaire© is a registered trademark of Research Products Corporation.

I have not yet had the filter installed. That will take place during October and my winter maintenance check-up. I would like to comment on the purchase and delivery of the filter. It was an easy and simple professional telephonic order and delivered on the date promised. The filter I am certain will function as expected. Should there be any shortfall I will contact your offices.

Aprilaire 213 Pleated Filter Media by John F Savoy (Paoli PA US)
This is the factory replacement for a filter in my new air cleaner system attached to my air conditioning/heater unit. I bought the maunfacturer's product and it is the excat replacement for the originally instlled filter. Product arrived on a timely basis and was well packed. It was in new condition and fit the system perfectly and was easy to intall. It was exactly what I ordered and I had no issues with placing, receiving or instaling.
Aprilaire 213 Pleated Filter by Daniel J. Lovaglio (Wilton Ne US)
Finally looked at my new furnace that was installed April of 2013 and looked at the air filter. MAN! Did it need replacing. I found the Aprilaire website and ordered it through their website. It came with no problem and arrived when they said it would arrive. Slipped out the old one (which was disgusting)and slipped in the new. Very, very easy. Not realizing I was suppose to replace it twice a year. Once at the beginning of Spring and once and the beginning of Fall. Anyway, it was easy as pie and now my system is good to go again. I will order another one for the fall and replace it. I have it jotted down on my calender when I put the last one in and when to order for the next season. Price was around $55.00. I guess you can find it cheaper on other sites but I prefer to put in what's right for the system. Good company to deal with. In fact, I have another house as a rental and I need to order the Aprilaire 201 replacement filter in the fall also. That one has more pleats and has the plastic guides with it. It's an older system. I believe the price on that one is around $30 something and change. All 'n all, a great product and a great company to deal with.

the filters were very easy to install and do a great job.
Retired by Mike imbriano (Massapequa Ne US)
Very good filter
Easy to install by Carolyn Creed (Flemington NJ US)
The filter is easy to remove and to install. The only reason for the 4 stars, rather than 5 is that the instructions about aligning the arrow with the airflow are unclear and the illustrations do not seem to match my system.

Aprilaire 213 pleated filter by Jacqueline Jackman (Vienna VA US)
So far I have not used any of the new filters. I had a new furnace installed this fall (Carrier)and the installers put in a new filter. I have a maintenance agreement with the company that installed the furnace and they will probably change the filter in the spring. Your web failed for some reason and I could not put an order thru that way so I called your factory in Arizona. A nice man took my order. Thanks.
Aprilaire by Robert R. Gada (Bridgewater NJ US)
Our Aprilaire has been in service since 1998 when our furnace was installed, I change the filter twice a year, not only is it a great filter also easy to maintain. When its time for a new furnace you can be sure there will be a Aprilaire intalled.
Aprilaire 213 by Robert Gada (Bridgewater NJ US)

April Air 213. by William A Bower (Nottingham MD US)
This model filter came with a new Carrier heat pump I had installed on my home in Sept. 2011. It lasts a full year and is so easy to replace. It also keeps the system operating well without the need for constant quarterly filter changes and the environment in our home is noticeably ccleaner too.

Everything went well! by Rita Hallocik (Mims Fl US)
The April Air filters I ordered fit and work great. It is so nice to be able to order them in the number and time I need. So easy, and quick. thanks.
Aprilaire 213 Pleated Filter Media by Paul Fisk (Lattham Ne US)
They're good filters but a little cumbersome to line up to install. It might be easier if the ends of the rails on the filter that support the filter on the fixed furnace rails were flared a little to make themselves line up more easily and guide the filter into the right position. It's currently a bit tricky to get the top and bottom rails lined up at the same time.

Product review by Bob Matlosz (Naperville Il US)
Well pleased with the filter. I purchased the retrofit kit last year along with an extra filter. I ordered more filters on this last order. Bought two filter pack to get discount. The filters are a snap to install compared to the pre-retrofit filter design. Keep up the good work.
Review of Aprilaire 213 Filter Media by William F Panici (Washington DC Di US)
Product arrived just fine and in good time. Removed old filter myself and replaced with new. Easy installation with the brackets already in place by a/c air handler installer. Does a very good job.

213 Filter Media by Dan Ziparo (Jacksonville FL US)
The 2210 air cleaner with the 213 filter media provides a great deal of relief from all my allergies. I sleep better at night and I'm not sneezing all day long. The filter media is easy and fast to change and the price is very reasonable.
213 filter by Linda Begandy (Pittsburgh Pe US)
We purchased a spaceguard air filter system in 1977 and we are still using it. The new Aprilaire filters are so much easier to install than the old ones. The filters don't tear when installing them. I have noticed that the new filters keep the house less dusty. My husband had lung cancer,and the doctors were pleased that we had a good filteration system. Thanks for the excellent product!
Aprilaire 213 filter by Troy F. Reich (Rockwall Te US)
Seems to catch a lot more than my original filter by ( )
Upgraded to this filter after installing the upgrade kit. Decided to check it after being installed for 3 months and was completely shocked at how dirty it was. I thought it would last at least 6 months before changing but guess I will be changing it out every 3 months. I guess that its good that it is so dirty after only 3 months or we would be breathing that stuff. We also have 3 dogs and a cat. Love the ease of installation after doing the old one.

Owner by Gene Britton (Pewaukee wi US)
We love our filter system. It works very effectively.
Comment on Aprilaire by Dorothy Garven (Los Angeles Ca US)
I really have no comment to make. I change the filter once a year on my furnace which is not an easy job for me. I am 84 years old and have to crawl under the house where the furnace is located to change it. I have no suggestions as to how to make it easier except take 50 years off my age.
Nice to receive in the mail by Beverley (Hingham MA )
Speaking to a person, receiving the shipment promptly and having the system work well. These are all key features to good customer service and reasons that working on line can be successful. I searched and found the company on line and then ordered very easily over the phone.
Karl W. Hupfer by Karl Hupfer (Westfield Ma US)
The conversion kit utilizing these filters are much more convenient to install than the old system. Thanks for recommending the conversion.
Best yet by Richard Sullivan (Lewisville Te US)
The best filter you have come up with yet.
home owner by John Kreitzer (Natrona Heights PA US)
There is no comparison between the two different filters. Before ordering the Aprilaire 213 Pleated Filter I was so fustrated trying to put the combs in the old style pleated material I did not finish and left the filter out of the furnace. When I received the new filter, it was apparent by the look and feel of the filter it was of a better quality and would do a better job in cleaning the air. I was amazed at the ease of installing the filter, it only took seconds, what a difference. My wife, also is very satisfied with the results. I give it 10 stars

SUPER HVAC FILTER by James Robertson (Abilene Te US)

review by Jim Kaspar (Highland Mi US)
Couldn't have been easier. Slide out the old filter, slide in the new one. Purchase thru the internet , you don'have to burn some of that high priced gas.
Aprilaire 213 by George E Morse (Newbury MA US)
Wanted a more effective filter for Model 2200, so ordered Aprilaire 213 upgrade kit. Instructions were clear, and online video was very helpful. Total time for upgrade installation was about 15 minutes, and the entire conversion could not have been easier.
Filter review by Chris Cooper (Hoover Al US)
Easy to install.
213 air filtration by Ronald D. Roeske (Bloomington Il US)
I have an older house and the Aprailaire 213 does a superior job of filtering dust and other harmful particles.
Filter upgrade by Ernest Schirmer (Lawrenceville NJ US)
I upgraded my Model 2200 filter to use the new pleated accordian media. Installing the upgrade hardware took five minutes and the new filter does seem to work much better both in terms of cleaning the air and increasing air flow (less pressure drop across the filter).

I very much like your product and the ease of installation. I am a man in the mid 70's. I lost about 70% of my retirement investments a few years ago. Since then I live mostly on a fixed income. My only complaint of your filter is the cost of same. I must watch my spending very colosely.

This is my first experience with Aprilaire, because I had a new system put in about a year ago. The service I recieved was wonderful and quick. Not knowing what to expect, I was suprised the size of the filter when it came. Easy to install.
Aprilaire Pleated Filter by Steve (Salisbury NC US)
This filter came highly recommended by an HVAC contractor I know well and trust. We paid to have our duct work modified to accomodate the housing. Now, the replacement filter is easy to order, it was delivered on time, and is simple to install. It performs as advertised. I wish I had known about the product sooner.
