Tools & Materials
The filter kit consists of the air filters needed to keep dust and debris out of your heater's rotor. The kit contains the air filters for the rotor and a new filter gasket. The filters should be inspected often, and replaced when they show signs of dirt buildup. Clean filters allow for unrestricted air flow and better performance.
