This is not formally a filter, but its operation will affect your air quality, and it may have a screen or a sponge that can get clogged.   Check the manual to see how it operates.    Many older furnace mounted humidifiers have been neglected or abandoned.   See if yours works; call a heating specialist to service it if you are not sure.   Winters in Toronto can be pretty dry and it is best if you can keep the humidity level in your home between 35 – 50%.
"...Was told that even to pick up my things from the warehouse, there would be an extra $40 charge. So now I had an extra $40 charge, along with costs from having to hire a mover. Additionally, I was told that if we did not move out our things by Saturday (and they would not be able to deliver until Tuesday), there would be an additional $59 charge for an extra month of service.Because of Door to Door's original inability to deliver, we were suddenly facing all of these additional charges along with the hassle of having to transport our things from the storage unit (40 minutes away) to our dorm."

They seem to be all over Ontario now. Unfortunately I "worked" for them for half a day before walking out on the "trainer" and calling him out on his scamming bullshit, and almost punching him in the face. Their whole pitch is designed so that they don't give you a chance to respond, and just force their way into your basement and into your home. DO NOT LET THEM IN!!!

Some furnaces come equipped with this filter, and there are various configurations.   Find the manual and become familiar with it’s operation. You can pull out the filters and check them, make sure they are clean and in place.   Hire a forced air heating specialist if you are unsure about how to operate / clean it and have them show you how it works.
The body, which is often called the canister, is significantly larger for these filters than it is for other types of filters. Each canister will have locations to hold each different type of filter media, and the large canisters will have more filter media. This type of filter does take more effort to set up and maintain, in exchange for its power and flexibility.

Many new energy efficient homes come with HRV’s.   These provide a source of fresh filtered air into the house and exhaust the stale air.   Most route the air in and out of the furnace ducting.    HRV’s have several filters including sponge sheets as well as the corrugated core.    Vacuuming or washing with soap and water usually does the trick – follow the instructions in the owner’s manual.  Sometimes instructions are labelled inside the unit too. These filters are very important for air quality in today’s newer, tighter houses.
Compared to The Home Depot’s method of ranking air filters (FPR), MERV has wider range. While FPR’s rating system goes from 1 to 10, MERV’s rating system goes from 1 to 20. FPR 10 is similar in strength to MERV 20, since they are both the highest rating value. However, FPR 1 doesn’t necessarily equate to MERV 1. It isn’t until FPR 4 and 5 that filters start trapping larger particles like household dust and lint, dust mites, pollen and pet dander. Meanwhile, MERV 1 to 4 will trap all these pollutants. Some examples of MERV below:

Indeed, the company spends a significant bit of text explaining what makes their containers strong and durable. The storage containers are made of wood and prevent condensation, mold, and mildew and the cover resists weather, according to the website. It also touts the container's ability to fit into driveways and parking spaces and accommodate apartment and condo loading areas.
The locations are limited and the age of the containers and fleet is not clear. "Some containers are new and some are older," says a customer service representative of the containers, who refrained from answering about the fleet age. But the company is operating a little more than 20 years and markets itself as constantly updating its offerings. I would imagine that includes the trucks and even the forklifts and not just the containers.

Using more storage units means spending more money. It also might require more drives back and forth either on the part of the company or you. That sound you hear is the swoosh of all the money being sucked out of your pockets. Still, I can understand how this option can be convenient and affordable for kids moving into the dorms and those in smaller homes and apartments. And I - as I've mentioned time and again - appreciate the thought of not having to drive this stuff on a huge truck. Yes, it's always worth repeating.
This company tried scamming my parents out of $16,000+. I’m sure scams like these are very common, and a lot of people are stuck paying money to these scumbags. Please share this video so word gets out and so people are aware that fraudulent companies like this exist. I personally think the government should step in and void any previous contracts made by this company, “Ontario Home Services”. If it happened to us, it’s definitely happened to others.

Despite anything, management tells you. By accepting this job you have decided you are a door to door salesman. Did not start this way, new management in the last few years has run this company reputation into the ground. No more company appointments, they expect you to sell all your family and then become a door to door salesman. 100% commission, job that requires you to work 6 days a week. Just a matter of time... for the lawsuit. Same goes for Chatsworth and Anaheim offices. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this company. You will burn through your savings.

In addition, most of the country (210 million Americans), now have their municipal water fluoridated without the consent of the homeowner. Fluoride is a nasty chemical derived from the fertilizer industry as a waste product from its manufacturing process. All of these chemicals have been shown to have deleterious health effects including reduced IQ in children.
Fiberglass air filters are very thin and they have a simple flat panel surface for trapping particles from the air. They were originally developed to protect your heating and air conditioning equipment, not to improve your indoor air quality. They can often be purchased for less than $1 apiece. Unfortunately, they remove less than 10% of the air pollutants from your home. They have a MERV rating between 1 and 4.
Sponge filters can look large and bulky in your tank. Some air pumps can be pretty noisy, too. Most sponge filters are rated for tanks up to 10 gallons in size, which limits options for larger tanks. But there are solutions out there–multiple sponge filters in a single tank could provide adequate filtration rates. And some sponge filters pair well with certain HOB filters.
