Would anybody be able to tell me if there are any size restrictions for the media filter if I go with the following YORK furnace?
YPLC080B12MP12C - 80%AFUE, 80K btuh, Modulating, Variable Speed
The company that I have short listed has mentioned 16x25 media filter but I currently use a 20x25x1 filter on my existing equipment (Borg Warner). One would logically think that a greater surface area would offer less resistance for the return air path. Am I right here?
Also, if for some reason, I decide not to use the media filter, can I simply remove the cartridge and use the normal filters with the furnace? I mean, is the existence of the filter types mutually exclusive? - I know that this is a stupid question but you never know what happens if I end up renting my townhouse sometimes in the future. It is better that the renter at least uses the usual 1" filter than not use any at all.
Thanks in advance.
