Is there anyway I can upgrade to a paper filter? The "cut to fit" fiberglass sheet slides into the front panel on the back side of pannel, and is held in with a wire cage. I hate fiberglass, VERY poor filtration. But if I had a 1" thick dimension pleated paper filter, I could put it in, but I am concerned about restricting airflow.

Hey DBMaster, thanks for leading me into the right direction. I'm going to purchase some Lennox "hammock" filter material. It is coated with a film of viscosine adhesive.

Viscosine filter adhesives are viscous substances applied to various types of air filters to increase arrestance and dust holding capacity.
We have used Walmart/Ace branded cut-to-fit fiberglass, without any "filter chargers", and the furnace has the hammock mounting style filters. Hopefully using charged filters will help.
