heating system air filters that remove fibreglass


I am in the process of learning about fibreglass lined metal ducts which we probably have in our house, and its an old house (early 80s). So till I figure out what needs to be done and if we can afford it, is there some kind of air filter we can use with our heating system (not the portable room filter kind) to get rid of fibreglass particles if any. I was looking at electrostatic filters, does this do the job ? Is there any specific kind/brand one would recommend ? Thanks anita

This is Turtle.
Well in any case get a 3M filter from Walmart for about $3.00 and it will stop any fiberglass that would be in the air.

25 year old ducts lined with fiberglass?? probably not. The fiberglass is the least of your worries.
Don't waste you money on electrostatic or "Paul Harvey" filters. For filters, go here http://www.glasfloss.com/products/zsacrf.html
Get a pro to do a complete check on your comfort system, you may not have any worries at all OTH, there could be other problems that need to be addressed.
