    "NO"... meaning it would be much less restrictive... think I decided to just buy 12" x 30" x 4" filters. I can pound out the lip that holds the 1" filter, so a 4" filter can "slide by". Then just...

    I plan on calling a tech if it trips again. On the outdoor panel I have a "AC" breaker, a 30A and 60A both labeled "Furnace". The "60A "Furnace" is what tripped. My "guess" is it got cold real...

    I bought a new house that had 1" return filters... I had a Honeywell 4-3/8" filter (merv 10 I believe) installed at the AC unit in the attic, and removed the 1" filters. Doesn't seem to be half the...
