We have a medical type HEPA filter unit running 24/7 (HoMedics AR 10A)

That's a nice portable one, and makes sense. My original point was that generic HEPA filters are marketed to people with big furnaces, but ordinary HVAC systems aren't designed to have that sort of restrictive filter.

Anything leafy green is YUCH.
About 5% of population is a Supertaster and usually hates greens.
We also tend not to like alcohol or tobacco.

I've heard about the Supertasters concept before, but I didn't know leafy greens were in the yuck zone.

I'm not a huge fan of kale, but one of my cousins served homemade kale chips at a party this summer. She tossed the kale with olive oil, baked the leaves until dry and crispy and then lightly salted them. The kale was delicious that way!

I actually love old-fashioned cooked kale greens on the stove, but this current craze about kale chips and kale juice doesn't appeal to me.

Well, my alma mater, U of L, crashed and burned against Clemson on Saturday, but ESPN's College Game Day showcased my University, and that was good.

they can be washed, though I'm not sure how, and they're not made of paper, no other filter will fit, outside of the type that stops grease, which was previously there.

What would be the reason to have a grease trapping filter in a furnace?

Well, if there is life out there, it seems inevitable to me, aside from problems with current laws of physics, that we're going to find each other someday, so a few bottles thrown in the cosmic ocean now seem harmless enough.

The air filters are more like green scrubbing pads that are about 1/2" thick, minus the sponge.

Are they the reusable type that you wash?

I just use a cheap basic disposable filter, 16x25x1 size, and replace it once a month or so. There are HEPA style filters in that size, and they cost a lot more, plus the problem presented seems to be that they restrict air flow so much they might hurt the furnace.

Post:
the furnace was just not getting any air

I've heard that the expensive HEPA filters are actually not a good idea to buy for exactly that reason. They restrict the air flow so much, they put a strain on the blower motor.

This furnace is 30yrs old, HEPA filters it doesn't have, it's clogged cause of Cat hair and dust.

Right, I'm just saying use of a HEPA-quality filter might not be a good idea.
