Why doesn’t this HEPA air filter fit?

My spouse has been having a lot of difficulties with his allergies lately.

  • I had learn that by simply installing a HEPA air filter into your oil furnace or a/c unit, you could remove a lot of allergens from your air.

I went to the home center and asked if they carried HEPA air filters for our a/c unit? As soon as I got the HEPA air filter home, I put it in the a/c unit. I couldn’t think the HEPA air filter wouldn’t fit. I called the Heating and A/C business to see if I needed a specialty sized HEPA air filter for our a/c unit. They asked me for the serial number of our A/C unit? The Heating and A/C tech told me that our a/c unit was not made to accept a HEPA air filter. I had to have some customizing done to our A/C unit before I could use a HEPA. I had no method what he was talking about. He explained that if I were to put a HEPA into our A/C unit, I would need to have a greater and heavier fan. Without a greater fan, I wouldn’t be able to get enough airflow, and our a/c unit could end up being disfigured beyond repair. This I understood. He told me they made portable whole-house air purifiers, which could be used in whatever room our spouse was in. If the portable whole-house air purifier worked, I could constantly have revisions made to the A/C unit, and after that I could use the HEPA, however it was going to be costly.
