hvac air return


My ceiling air return grill is 24 x 36; too large for a standard 24 x 30 filter. Can I safely replace with a smaller grill?

you buy a 24 X 24 and a 12 X 24 and put them together. i have the same setup and that's how you gotta do it.

Yep, that's how it's done. That way you are using standard size filters.

Or 2-18X24 air filters. Sounds like you have a 3 ton A/C.
