Default filter maintenance hint...

might want to check monthly and change filters as needed before the media is sucked off the frame into the blower fan

both coils on 3yr old systems now require complete cleaning and one blower fan has to be replaced...over a few $s worth of filters

more inspections = more seen

it also helps to install filters in the proper direction
had those been the paper media would have been contained by the screen wire & had less opportunity to billow or be torn away & sucked into the blower
