Furnace Filter Location—Where is It?

Furnace Filters are an important part of your heating and cooling system. This article will tell you where they are located and how to replace them.

Your home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system is one of the largest appliances in your home. Because most furnace filters are between 1” and 5” thick, you may be wondering how to locate this small part of such a large appliance.

To keep your system in good shape, you need to change the air filters regularly. This typically means replacing the filter every 90 days. However, homes with pets or allergy sufferers in residence should change out filters on a monthly maintenance schedule.

How do you find your air filter? Located in the blower compartment, filters are found in built-in racks so you can easily slide them in and out. If the furnace filter is on the unit itself, you will find it near the air handler. Begin by determining what type of heating or cooling system unit you have.

Is the furnace filter the same as the AC filter? Yes, it is. They both share the same air handler. You can usually find your HVAC system in the same area of your home as your water heater.
