NY Good Questions: Air Filter Installation Issues?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I have installation issues with an air filter and was hoping some apartment therapy readers might be able to help.

I’m not sure if it would be easier to notch the door frame, move the unit over an inch or two, or just quit complaining.

Also, would you recommend reusable air filters over the disposable ones?

If the filter had a flexible rubber/plastic frame it might be a little more forgiving when being shoved into place.

Thanks! Flipp
