Upfront, I admit being pretty much a layperson when it comes to HVAC. So if what I say seems ridiculous, my apologies in advance.
I have an Amana AMH95 Gas Furnace. 95% energy efficiency. Model number: AMH950904CX. My air intake is in the ceiling and I use 1" filters.
From what I have seen, some filters shouldn't be used because they can restrict airflow and maybe cause problems to the unit.
I am trying to strike a balance between a good filter that can help with airborne particles/allergies and keeping the unit running smoothly.
I was thinking of Filtrete Micro Allergen which has a MERV rating of 1000 and a pressure drop of 0.21. http://www.iallergy.com/filtrete-air...comparison.php
I have tried to read the spec to the HVAC, but I can't make heads or tails from it with respect to whether my HVAC can support this type of filter.
Is MERV 11 / pressure drop of 0.21 ok for my HVAC unit? What is the maximum MERV / pressure drop that my unit can handle?
I have attached the spec for your reference.
