But Bruce, you said the fiberglass filters resolve the problem of shutting down. And that's what the installers recommended. If your heating or A/C is not diminished, why would you be concerned. And...

My previous post should've said you're NOT responsible for normal wear and tear.
Yes, yes it is. The best you can do is advise the landlord of the problem and seek a compromise to fix it. With luck...

If you feel you must have a security "COPY" then scan every single document you have. It might not be legal in a court but it proves you had documents in your possession.
