Can the humidifier be mounted on the returm plenum?

After 32 years, I decided it's not worth repairing and maintaining my Autoflo 200P. I'll probably replace it with an Aprilaire 500. There's no easy room to mount the Aprilaire on the hot plenum...

Yes it is. I already have it hooked up and running the a/c. I tried to run the heat, but it's either not heating, or it's too warm to verify function. It was 78 deg in the unit here in Florida. I...

I wouldn't pay $170, but I wouldn't ignore it. Cabin filters are pretty much done after about 15K. When spent, they can be a drag on the blower motor and reduce heat/ac effectiveness. Try looking...

I've cleaned injectors myself. That's because I have access to an ultrasonic cleaner. I can't imagine cleaning injectors without one. I also reverse flush by forcing the fluid backward.

For the past 40 years, I've collected a small box of plugs for this very reason. I have a plastic or rubber cap for nearly every task that calls for one.

My air filters stay clean a long time where I drive. I use them for at least 30K. Most people change them too early, which is wasteful.
