I was thinking about getting one of these to put near my heating and cooling exhaust to pick up the finer dust that escapes.
What do you use?

I don’t have one, but I’ve heard good things about them. I already have heating, and cooling in my garage. But this is a great little heater.

I just buy MERV 12 furnace filters and put them on the air intake.

MERV 12 is good to about 1 micron.

You can go up from there to a MERV 16 which captures down to .3 microns dust.

I caution you to use staged filters because the higher the MERV rating, the more they cost. The MERV 12’s that I use are $13/ea and I change them every two months. It takes 4 of them to do a complete change.

The staged part gets changed every week in the shop and is a MERV 2 or whatever is cheap. I pay about $4 for three pleated MERV 2 filters.

I may make an intermediate filter holder to take a MERV 6, but for the moment this is keeping the dust out of the house and keeps the wife from frowning too much.
