    Maybe I misunderstood... I have two 14x25 filters (messed up on the earlier 16" dimension I put in) - so 700 square inches/200 should be a bare minimum match to the 3.5 ton system, shouldn't it?

    I assumed there was a guess there... there's no way they can account for air quality - but is there a formula that they're using for run time?

    I was wondering about that. It seemed like a bad design for them to be running continuously. Is there a particular EWC unit that you would recommend that I suggest to my HVAC guy?
