    Right Angle Air Cleaner

    Hi guys, I'm planning on having a right angle air cleaner installed and wanted your opinions. The ones I'm looking at are the Trion Air Bear and GeneralAire MAC-L. The Air Bear says it acts like a turning vane, so I'm guessing the MAC-L is the same? From what I gather, the MAC-L claims 0.14" w.c. @ 1400 CFM, while the Air Bear states 0.24" w.c. @ 1400 CFM. Or is there another right angle out there that's better? Space is very limited, which is why I'm looking at right angle cleaners. Thanks.

    The right angle cleaners are great. You can use a 20x25 media where if you use a conventional cleaner beside the furnace the biggest is a 16x25.

    If the General is less restrictive, that's quite a plus. Always use the factory media though. We found that generic 20x25s can be twice as restrictive as genuine Trion. We've put a couple of Generals in but never tested their pressure drop. General is a good company, based in suburban Detroit.
