    The drain pipe is PVC. I guess I'll leave the insulation on it. Guess it's not required by code around here, but it seems to make sense to have it on there.

    Well, I'm not really "relying" on the 1" to filter the allergens out, but like I said, if it does block some of them, that's a bonus. I'll probably take a look at them for build-up at the one month...

    Just had a new system installed, and it has a 20 x 25 x 1 filter in it. From what I've read on here so far, it seems that I don't want to go too high of a MERV rating in the 1" filters due to the...
