Sorry for the multiple posts everyone, just thought I would break up my questions. I am looking at installing a new HP - I have a Lennox G61V furnace and I am looking at installing an HPX12 or maybe the 15.
One of the sales guys said they always install one of the 5" media box or electronic cleaners with HP installs. He said that the "standard" 1" filters suck and the coils will be clogged with dirt in no time with those filters.
Ok, this all sounds nice, or is it just an excuse to charge for more gear. I realize that a better cleaner is, well, better. And there are good arguments for keeping everything nice and clean. However, I am very good about changing my 1" filters - generally I do it once every 2 months. For the cost difference in the installation and the media, I could replace filters one a month for many, many years and it still would not cost as much.
Thoughts on this?
