AC Filter Material

I am looking for some replacement filters for my three Coleman AC units. All I have been able to find is the flimsy gray foam filters at various RV supply stores. What I have is a thicker, green filter that I believe is what the HVAC guys call synthetic hog hair. A tech at Camping Connections in Myrtle Beach, SC told me CC probably specified a more sturdy material than what normally comes with a Coleman AC which is the thin foam stuff.

Has anyone found this stuff anywhere (without buying yards of it)?

I believe that the green material you are referring to is washable. I think I have seen smaller packages at either Lowe's or HD

I looked at Lowe's and HD while in Richmond and did not see the stuff. I will check the Lowe's near us. I've also found a HVAC supply near the airport and plan to give them a call. Grainger has it but not planning to drive to Charleston.

We have been washing our filters weekly and they are getting pretty worn.

That "hog hair" filter you have was not on the original AC unit, they came with the grey foam filter

Home Depot has the flimsy grey stuff for $1 a package. Maybe installing two layers would suffice for you.

My roof AC ducted units needed one package to filter both AC's.

I needed another for my bedroom OTR evaporator.

Well that explains the perplexed response I got from the parts guy at Camping Connection here in Myrtle Beach. I guess the PO put these in.

I did find a 2' X 3' piece of the hogs hair stuff at a local HD. It is washable and definitely more sturdy than the flimsy gray foam filters I've had in other similar AC units.
