Why Can’t I Find My Filter at the Hardware Store?
Some filter brands and sizes can only be purchased from licensed dealers and will not be able to be found in your local home improvement store. It is important to know what you are buying when you purchase a filter from a hardware store as it will likely not be an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) filter. Many disposable filters that are sold at hardware stores are of a lower quality and are not made by the same manufacturer as your furnace. At HVAC.com, we only offer true OEM filters and parts in order to give our customers equipment of the highest possible quality.
