This is for people on municipally-treated water, not wells.  If you have a well, get your water tested.

1.  Determine if your municipality uses chloramines or chlorine, AND if they add fluoride.

Do a web search for ” ‘your town + state’ annual water quality report” OR call the number on your water bill to ask them.

2.  Based on the answer to those 2 questions:

a.  If you have chlorine, not chloramines, and no fluoride, this is the best choice:

b.  If you have chloramines (even some of the time) and no fluoride, this is the best choice:

2-media 1-tank Chloramine Plus

c.  If you have Chlorine OR Chloramine AND Fluoride you can select either one of the 2 or 3 tank whole house filters that is described as filtering Fluoride – see them on this page:
