The air filter for a HVAC unit is typically located in a slot above or below the unit. For other systems, it can usually be found behind the return air grille on the wall, ceiling, or closet door. This is usually close to the home thermostat or right next to the air handler for the air conditioning system. In some cases, fine sand and dust can enter the house unless Honeywell FPR 10 filters are added to the roof return air ducts inside the house.
To prevent this, it is important to inspect and replace the air filter in your air conditioner every month during the heating or cooling season. For certain systems, such as the Ruud Achiever 80-foot Super Quiet Air Controller, there is a molded permanent air filter that slides down the back of the unit when viewed from the burner side.

When looking for an air filter, it is important to follow the air path and find the return air. This will tell you where a filter can be placed. Additionally, horizontal air handlers are installed in attics or low spaces while vertical air handlers are installed in basements or high attics. It is also important to note that unidirectional airflow systems draw new air from the basement to the air handler to heat or cool it and send it one way to the living room.
This can lead to high operating costs.
