What Merv Rating Filter Should I Use?
I have a Arcoaire RPJ II furnace, built in 1996. Actually I have two of them... one in the basement and one in the attic.
They support 16x25x1 size filters.
But I am confused about what Merv rating to get? I heard that if you go too high, it can restrict airflow too much. And if you go too low, it can damage the furnace.
We suffer from airborne allergies in our household. Plus we have a pet cat.
What Merv rating filter should we use?

This furnace has a very difficult access for the filter. Any suggestions as to how to replace filter and what size to use. Thanks in advance.

when changing filter what direction is air flow. I have attachment for electronic air cleaner but got rid of cells and now use 20 by 25 inch by 4 inch filter. Not sure how to put in by arrow showing air flow

blower noise on shutdown
I have an Arcoaire furnace,RPJ 2, Model GNJ075N12C1, Serial #L9707 50638,
works fine except has developed noise, I guess from fan-forced heat blower, when it shuts down, it sounds like the squirrel cage is beginning to hit on the housing making a jingle bell sound--I'm guessing the bearings are going out on the squirrel cage blower. no noticeable noise when the blower is operating, just when the squirrel cage is coasting to a stop. any suggestions? ("get it fixed!" probably :0)

Furnace ignites and then shuts off, blows cold air and then ignites again, may do this a couple of times before sstarting to blow heat.
