Step 4: Fig.5 shows strong scissors that will be used to cut the fiberglass filter. Fig.6 shows the paper filter on top of the fiberglass filter and preparations to get the best fit.
Step 5: Now replace the fabric filter into the A/C registry. The new filter will be pliable and not like the paper filter with a cardboard exterior. This pliable filter can be cleaned with water and be used over again. While the paper filter can only be used once. Some Air Conditioners companies state in their information that state that these filter may void your warranty.
