Metal filter in ceiling air return

graywings123July 5, 2012

I bought a metal washable air filter to replace the disposable filter in my ceiling air return duct. As the air flow goes on and off, the metal filter is making a banging noise at it is either sucked up against the metal frame or dropped onto the metal cover.

I'm trying to come up with a way to pad the frame. Is there a product available to to do this? Most of my ideas are for products that are too thick, such as cabinet door bumpers. Would the soft side of velcro strips work?

How about the handyman's best friend, duct tape?

Sounds to me as if the new filter doesn't allow
as much air flow as the origninal. It may
put more load on the motor, and decrease it's
lifespan.
