New Trane (2007) XV90 (TUY120R9V5W) Vertical position in basement, easy access.
Please help! I only have a 12" base can & therefore do not have room for an electric air filter under furnace. The base can has two openings for return air (Both of them are 8x24)
1st Question: What is a Good Quality filter that I can purchase that comes stock in 24"X25"X1" size?
(I still have the cheap black plastic washable filter that came with furnace new) I have only found 24x25 as a "custom" size which makes them expensive!
Should/Can I replace the flimsy stock filter bracket to install a 2" or 3" filter? Is this advisable? If so, who makes this bracket? where can I buy?
I read somewhere once that trane makes a 4" filter that fits inside Furnace housing? Did I read that right? I read it "tapers in" on the top 3" of filter? so that you can use the stock 1" bracket?
Sounds expensive for a disposable.. probably too expensive, but I MIGHT consider it during some remodeling that is going on for 6-18 months, to protect the furnace.
As I mentioned earlier, I only have a 12" high base can under the furnace.
(because of a 36" high Trane AC Coil box installed on top of furnace, with pair of drop cheek pants on top of that leading to the supply duct which runs "under" the floor joists Not "in between" them.
So I do not have room for a standard electric Filter system
so that leads me too..
3rd question; do they have a custom size Electric filter? that would fit "inside" furnace housing itself? If so what brand? Where do I buy?
Thanks for help! and please if you could.. please offer advice on all 3 questions.
