Disposable fiberglass. This is one of the most popular filter options for furnaces. It is very inexpensive and is great for those that do not experience any types of allergies.
Disposable pleated. This is also a very popular option and is made from cotton paper and polyester. Keep in mind that, while this type of filter is efficient, it can also be expensive.
Disposable electrostatic. This type of furnace filter is affordable and is great for homes with smokers, pets, and kiddos. Do remember that custom sizes can be quite expensive, and can incur high costs if replaced regularly over the years.
