    Why we use the filters and cabinets we do...





    Year old in a rental house with floor returns. Blower compartment still clean as the day it was new.

    did you hear the sigh of relief?
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    We put in a new furnace back last june. Had an old belt drive low boy. Needless to say it pumped out some more air than the old furnace. Blew a bunch of **** out of the registers when we turned it on I suspect some of that dirt came from in some of the return ductwork.

    Wow!

    Usually when I see stuff that bad, there is no filter (pulled out and never replaced), and it's all in the blower wheel and packed in the coil.

    Lucky day!

    yup .... then theres a good chance the past few techs didnt inspect that & dumped gas in so then were pulling out lbs & lbs of refrigerant
