So now I actually have 4 reusable filters.
Our mobile home furnace is very strange. Our furnace technicians said it was probably made in a foreign country and installed into the house from the warehouse. They have never heard of the company before. That fact does not keep my furnace technicians from doing an excellent job and keeping my furnace running. True, they do need to special order almost any parts it needs but they still manage to keep it working. The biggest problem I have had with the furnace, however, is the fact that it is almost impossible to find furnace filters that fit it. I was lucky because I found a place online that sold the right size furnace filters for me. However, recently they stopped stocking them. I started looking again and simply couldn’t find anything. Finally, I came across reusable filters that should fit. Apparently some reusable filters can be cut to size. That is not true for all of them but this one filter supplier happens to carry reusable filters that can be cut. I ended up ordering 2 of them just in case I messed up with cutting the first one. This turned out to be a perfect plan. I used an old, dirty filter as a template and I cut the reusable filter. I was actually able to get 2 reusable filters out of just one. So now I actually have 4 reusable filters. Since I can reuse these furnace filters for years to come I don’t think I need so many. Oh well. At least now I don’t have to worry about finding more filters every few months.
