I need ideas for new filters for a new furnace

The old days are gone. My old furnace used old, simple, cheap filters.

Well, I only spent about $30 for the fan, but larger ducts were not an option -- just not enough space. I consider myself lucky to be able to fit everything in the space I had. I suppose I could...

Thanks very much.

The only thing I worry about -- a little -- is the furnace's computer chip someday "dying". The computer in my car did it a while ago -- and all of a sudden the car was dead --...
