Buying the right size filters

I ended up taking the air filters back to the home improvement center, however they would not take them back since I had broken one trying to put it into the A/C unit

I thought I had a full box of air filters for our air conditioner unit. I was sure I had them in the garage, however when I headed out to get them, the box was empty. At first I thought my filters were stolen because someone had come into my garage without my permission. But, that made little sense. I then wondered if maybe I had used the air conditioner air filters in the oil furnace. I wasn’t sure if they would even fit in the oil furnace. I knew I had to have used all the air filters, but just forgot that it was the last one. So, I called the Heating and A/C company and asked if they had a case of air filters for both the oil furnace and the air conditioner unit. I knew I would need one for the air conditioner soon. They told me to go to the local home improvement center since they didn’t have air filters in stock. Once I got there, I realized I had forgotten to take the style and air filter number with me. I knew what they looked like, and I was sure I could pick them out when I saw them. I took a box of air filters home and I opened it up. After pulling 1 out, I knew it wasn’t the right air filter. I tried to make it fit, but it just wouldn’t fit properly. I ended up taking the air filters back to the home improvement center, however they would not take them back since I had broken one trying to put it into the A/C unit. Next time, I’ve got to find the right air filters, because this venture cost me too much money.
