    Sheetrock dust in filter box

    When sawing through to create a 2nd return, a bunch of sheetrock dust was left in the box. Should I be concerned? I could (w/a long reach) get in there and vac it out if there's any chance it could get sucked into the AH.

    Get as much cleaned up as you can. Save pulling the coil when it gets wet and plugs with dust.

    Better to remove it with a vacuum than clogging up the air filter...or worse coating the HE and.or indoor coil. IF it's accessible, just vacuum out what you can. A good contractor should have vacuumed it out themselves. Clean-up IS part of the job.

    sheetrock dust is probably the worst contaminant for a evap. coil
