Running without a filter will do a bunch of bad things,
clogging your system with dust. I think that is a very
poor idea, and should not be done.

I've had this on again off again mental debate
concerning our furnace filter.
It's the usual 20x25, and I get the upgraded pleated version,
vs the plain fiberglass version.
However, in my mind, the pleated version
restricts the air flow more so than the fiberglass - nature of the beast.
SO - when it gets really hot in the summer,
or below zero in the winter -
I temporarily pull the air filter out for max air flow...
Now, not sure why exactly.... thinking of pushing more "treated air" into
the ducts & house.
BUT - does it make any sense ?
Since the air stream is going faster across the heat exchanger (winter),
or the A/C A-coil (summer) maybe the air outflow is higher
but the temperature is not at the max....
I'll have to take a test run with my IR kitchen therm and point at the duct
