Question Will sediment filter slow my flow??

I'm considering installing a basic whole house sediment filter. I'm on city water not well, so should I bother? Will it lower my pressure? Nothing fancy-just a basic clear GE one or comparable.

The crack runs perpendicular to the joists...so across probably five joists. By the way, I do believe the I-beams are about 16 inches apart. No way ours are 24.

Question Will a humidifier rust/damage fan?

I see that most all humidifiers are installed in the return duct-meaning very humid air goes straight in to the fan. Won't this cause rust in years to come?
