How To Find Your Air Conditioner Filter

We've said it once, and we'll say it again — changing your air filters is a MUST for homeowners.

Yet this very simple task often gets pushed to the backburner.

But why?

Because they have trouble locating them!

How To Find Your Air Conditioner Filter

How Many Air Filters Do You Have?

First things first, how many air filters do you have in your home? Check each room (including your attic and basement). HVAC wall units in each room will have the filter behind the unit. If you have an HVAC unit in your attic or basement, check under the removable cover on the air handler.

Where Are Air Filters Located on Your HVAC System?

Vertical HVAC systems — Vertical HVAC systems are typically found in the basement. The air filter can be located at the bottom of an up-flow, vertical system and the top of a down-flow, vertical system.

Horizontal HVAC systems — Horizontal HVAC systems are found in attics, garages, or large basements. The air filter will most likely be positioned vertically in a slot on the side of the unit.
