Are you having trouble finding the air filter in your home air conditioning system? It can be difficult to locate in some air conditioning systems, but you can usually find the air filter in the return air duct. Or in simple terms, that big metal grille on the wall, floor, ceiling, or utility closet door. Return air ducts can be almost anywhere. In some systems, the filters are located close to your home thermostat, in a return duct near the air controller.
In horizontal HVAC units with the return duct connected to the side of the air controller, the filter usually fits in a slot on the return air side of the unit. An arrow on the filter frame shows the direction in which air must flow through the filter, which is always away from the return air duct and towards the air treatment mechanism. If the heating and air conditioning systems share the same ducts, it is also possible that the air filter for both systems is located inside or near the furnace ventilation system. When the air conditioner filter becomes clogged, dust and dirt begin to enter the air conditioner itself, causing parts to wear and tear.
Replacing the air conditioner filter in your home will allow the unit to continue to blow cold air without interruption. If you want to improve air quality in your space by eliminating pollen, mold, and other harmful contaminants, you should invest in HEPA filters with a MERV rating of 10 or higher.If you're having trouble locating your air filters or changing them yourself, don't worry!
