I have a trane heat pump in my attic, do I replace the filter in the air handler AND return grill? Not sure if I can use just the return grill which is in my hallway ceiling


If you have 2 filters racks in your system you could just pick the easiest one to change and ues it exclusively. You could also use both and change the second one less often. That seems like a lot of monitoring. You may have to check both often at first until you are able to determine a schedule. It's not a bad idea but in most cases that level of filtration isn't required.

  • If you just change the return air grille filter, then you’d miss the OSA, right? – Lee Sam Apr 6 '19 at 5:45
  • I just use the filter that's in the air handler in the attic. The return registers (2 of them, actually) have no filters. – SteveSh Jan 1 at 21:50
