I have a Hunter CareFree Plus model (quite old-the thermostat has a analog control -no digital dispaly) and I wanted to start reusing it. It has been in a storage for a while, the filter is quite clogged. We tried the vinegar solution but it did not do much. CLR can't be used with aluminium (I am assuming this filter is made of aluminium)

I am seeing that Lowes has tons of these but different sizes. Assuming that the thickness matches can I cut a bigger one (I still have to figure out how) so it can fit in my humidifier?

I am also seeing some plastic or paper like options for other brands. Since those will be easier to cut, can I use one of those?

I have this guy (model 37250) https://www.humidifierfilters.com/hunter/37250 Part#3142 sells for 40CAD on Amazon.ca...not worth it for that money you can probably buy a brand new humidifier ... The US site has it but they won't ship to Canada..

  • Amazon appears to have several Hunter Carefree Plus media replacements. Model number required to see if there a match tho – Tyson Dec 31 '17 at 16:07
