Indoor Heat Pump Drawing In Unfiltered Air


I have a Carrier heat pump. The filter is a washable one, 20' X 21.5", with a metal frame. Above it is a 20" X 0.5" gap that draws in unfiltered air. How do I close that gap while still being able to remove the filter for cleaning?

use a 20 x 25 x 1 filter......the extra 5 inches will stick up above the slot, giving you a "handle" to grab when changing the filter, making it much easier to change the filter.
