I havent done much shopping around as far as the pleated filtering systems go but I think I would probably buy one of the more reputable units. That being said...can I purchase these replacment filters at my local Lowes or will I have to pay through the eye teeth at the HVAC supply house?
I`m just weighing out my options, I might as well spend the money on the new system because the wifey wouldnt let me get away with spending the money on my old cars anyway!!
You can buy most any filter on line, some HD and Lowes carry the large filters.

I`ve had a several Hot Rods over the years but few with the kind of torque that 440 put`s out! I just found a nice 883 4speed out of a bb 69 Charger, so if I can get the wife to let me get the clutch,bell housing, shifter...etc,etc, then it will just be that much more fun!!
my humble opinion
i'd go with an april air and a sanuvox ultraviolet light. no moving parts, filtration down to 3 microns, three year bulb warranty and a year of performance out of one cartridge. cartridges are very reasonable. cheaper than a years supply of one inch filters.
My first car was a 68 383 RR my third car was a 68 426 hemi RR I would love to have them back.

There is less dust on horizontal surfaces, too.
As for allergies, I lean toward making sure the humidity is 40 to 49% in the house at all times. We use supplemental dehumidification to do this, and we monitor RH with the Vison Pro T-stats. Dust mites don't do well in low humidity environments.
I don't recall any fires. Just had a potential for arcing which may cause a fire. AprilAire had the same problem with the 5000. Both companies handled the recall rather quickly and effectively in my opinion. The AccuClean works and you will be happy with it, make sure you explore all options that are available to you then make a decision.
