I have a Hunter CareFree Plus (quite old-the thermostat has a analog control -no digital dispaly) and I wanted to start reusing it. It has been in a storage for a while, the filter is quite clogged. We tried the vinegar solution but it did not do much. CLR can't be used with aluminium (I am assuming this filter is made of aluminium)
I am seeing that Lowes has tons of these but different sizes. Assuming that the thickness matches can I cut a bigger one (I still have to figure out how) so it can fit in my humidifier?
I am also seeing some plastic or paper like options for other brands. Since those will be easier to cut, can I use one of those?
Part #3142 sells for a prohibitive price--you can probably buy a brand new humidifier for the same amount.
