Return Air Filter Grille

i have a return air duct grill that needs replacing. i measured the outside of the grill and it is exactly 22 x 22. am i correct in measuring the grill on the front outside or do i need to measure it on the frame somewhere? i noticed that 22x22 return air grilles are not to popular (chickens teeth type) so that began me to wondering if i measured it on the right place. this house of my friends is about 1800 heated space which seems a bit big for a 20x20 return air duct volume. can anyone tell me how to measure a return air grille if i am doing it wrong?? i would name my next kid after you if you advise me correctly....i am 60 years old so i dont think you have to worry with me getting a girlfriend still fertile...LOL...but i look anyway...

Return Air Filter Grille

Return air filter grilles, are measured by their inside dimension, where the filter goes.

The site posted above, has links to the dimensions and specs of the grilles.
