    as long as there's a filter in the unit . . .

    so here i go to one of what i thought was an important account. contract calls for pleated filters at all locations which I'm sure is fine . . . when the filter is actually doing something. anyway the guy referred to as "the best" even though he really sucks has been here plenty of times before & guess figured all was well with this setup. evap & blower wheel was starting to accumulate layers of dust & ironically the diffusers & surrounding ceiling tiles were dirty. the gap was the same on both sides of the before. the after, well speaks for itself . .

    I thought so.. Some of those do have weird filter sizes. All he had to do was get the right one. Real hard.

    I hate Flanders filters, even if you order the right size, they never fit right because Flanders makes their filters smaller than any other filter manufacturer I know of.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    now that you mention that, I have noticed that as well.

    I thought that was just a coincidence on various calls, but now I know better.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    Wish every manufacturer would list recommended filter size on nameplate. I know Trane does on some. This would help a lot.

    That mesh filter comes with the unit. I have one of them on a store I service. The size was 19x20 and I could not find a one or two inch filter that size. I had to use a 20x20. It fit ok. I don't know why some units have crazy sizes that are not available.

    Well, that way you won't yell at the owner for not changing the filter - it constantly stays clear!
