Trane XE80 furnace, best filter to buy


Either of those Merv 8s should work well. You DO NOT want to go higher than that as I have had limit controls fail on that furnace. They are set low at around 175deg F or lower and will short cycle and break from a lack of air flow.

I read the same report.

But I' don't think Yuri means you should not replace every month..only that people will not necessarily do it, just like annual service.

That''s so true, but the lower limit setting isn't the only reason a limit will fail.

I had a 250* F limit go bad with a one inch filter user. Guy sang the blues when I charged him $160.00 to to replace it and do a go over on the furnace.

Furnace was less than five years old...guy would not agree to a yearly inspection...
