For the most part I use those inexpensive fiberglass filters and recommend changing them every other month.

The size is not dictated by the furnace. The size should be printed on the old filter.

I believe that unit uses the Aprilaire 201 filter. Lowes sells a Filtrete brand replacement that doesn't use the pleat separation combs: Shop Filtrete 2-Pack Hvac Basic Pleated Air Filters (Common: 20-in x 25-in x 6-in; Actual: 19.75-in x 24.25-in x 6.375-in) at Lowes.com

You may have to order this online as they may not stock in the stores. Alternately, there are many online sources for the Aprilaire version that uses the combs.

you think the one i posted should work? also what is the plastic drawer/housing unit that you put the actual filter in called? i'm assuming mine is OEM to the furnace but can you buy new ones online?

It looks like that filter will work in the 2200; somewhat mixed reviews. That style uses the plastic separator combs. If you don't have the manual for the space guard, look for it online as following the filter change procedure in the manual will save you some frustration.

If you search for space gard 2200 parts you will find plenty of sources for the plastic filter housing and the separator combs, which tend to get brittle and break after a while.

Also....Space-Gard model 2200 is a filter assembly rack..... not a furnace.
