How to Find Your HVAC Filter Location
Let’s take a look at common filter locations on different HVAC systems:
This powerful heating device is a workhorse in winter. As a result, the air filters will collect dust and debris throughout the season and need to be replaced on a regular basis to ensure your system can warm your home. However, it can be tricky to locate these filters, as they could be installed anywhere within your unit or your home’s ductwork. Commonly, you can find these filters inside openings in your ducts or locked behind metal panels on the device itself.
A heat pump is a heating and cooling device designed to transport warm air to the outdoors, or vice versa, to maintain a comfortable temperature inside. This unit’s air filters can be located in one of two places. They might be within the air-handler cabinet (the metal casing that protects the device’s internal machinery) or inside the return-air duct registers (grilles that open or close to help control airflow to the unit).
Ductless Air Conditioner
A ductless air conditioner is a simple solution if you want to cool smaller rooms. Typically, the air filters are found inside the device and can be easily accessed by unlocking the front panel.
