Default Duo Therm AC Filters

I done a number of searches on WOG and Google to try to find a replacement for the 2-1/2" X 15" air filters that are in our roof units and am having no luck locating them. The filters in our units are fragile and have seen better days. Anyone have a source for a suitable replacement?

If they are like ours, I buy sheets of it at Home Depot and cut it to size.

I just ordered a couple of these filters (Precisionaire Foam Pad With Support Grid 15 " X 24 " X 1/4 " Polyurethane Foam) from amazon which look exactly like the deteriorating ones I removed. Each filter can be cut to get 3 filters and since each Duo Therm needs 2 filters, I ordered 2 to get a total of 6 filters ...I'm an engineer so you might check the math

Thanks for the link John! I think that is just what I need, however, I think your AC's must use a different size than mine. Each of our units use two filter strips that measure, 2-1/2" wide X 15" long so I should be able to cut 10 strips out. If you only get three then, you must have much larger filter ducts. Wish I did. These things get dirty too quickly.

Never mind the previous comment about filter size, I figured out that when you cut out a strip from the sheet, you can't use the one next to it. I'm a retired engineer and my math is even worse!

Like Curt, I just go into a hardware store and buy window a/c filters, then cut what I need. Yes, there is some scrap if you want a plastic edge all around, but they are cheap.

'Duck' Air Conditioner Filter at Wally World. I cut six from one sheet. Cost about a dollar.

Out of curiosity, where are the filters on the M380 located, and how are they accessed?
