Full Answer

Online cross references enable you to visit any manufacturer's or supplier's website and enter the part number of the filter that you have (or even partial part number). The site will automatically find the correct cross reference for you. This makes the item more readily available than printed charts and provides them at lower costs and in a form that can be updated quickly. The same sites also usually supply cross references for air filters.
