You're also hardly filtering anything and recycling poor air into your home with the cheap filters. I bought some Garrison brand ones before and after 3 months of use, the filter was still clean. Which shows to me that it's not catching anything. The 3M ones I have to replace every 1-2 months and they're dirty.

Reminds of the Home Depot guy who was suggesting I use toothpaste instead of proper bathtub caulking since it works just as well... :lol:

Forgot about this until I saw it bumped on the main page.

Negative in Lethbridge & Calgary (had a bud check that works there), so it must have been a local clearance.

lol @ that Home Depot comment – Funny b/c it’s true sometimes – I remember (back when I worked there in Uni) getting stuck in Millwork one day because I had taken ONE of the online tests & was the “most” qualified to cover that department.

If you keep them inside they will still be around after you die.

Correct, the higher the rating the more restriction. But, I like to get the ones a bit better then the cheapie. I've noticed at my HD though that the more mid-level ones seem to no longer be on the shelf.

I'll be that anybody for you. My Rheem furnace popped it's rivets (on the primarily heat exchanger) for this particular reason. Then again the company that made it, ICG, was aware of the flaw. So there you have it ... check out your design first before using.

P.S. To repair you're looking at a job just south of a $1000 (that's it warranty does cover the part).

However, if your furnace design isn't affected by overheating ... then you can
