Where Is My Air Filter Located?

It would be hard for most of us to imagine life without our heating units and air conditioners. After all, temperature control is a huge part of maintaining the comfort level of any indoor environment. Plus, many units – especially air conditioning units in particular – help to moderate other factors that can contribute to the comfort level of any given room, such as humidity.

In order to make sure that your unit works as well as it should and lasts as long as possible, it’s incredibly important to make sure you maintain it properly. While this naturally includes practices like making sure it’s regularly serviced by a professional, it’s important to note that there are many simple things that the owner of a given unit can do to make sure things keep running smoothly as well.

The Importance of Changing Your Air Filter

One of the simplest and most important things that a homeowner can do to help keep their air conditioning unit running well is make sure that they’re replacing the air filter often enough. Believe it or not, dirty air filters that have been allowed to become clogged are the number one leading cause of unit malfunction by a landslide.

However, flawless function of your unit isn’t the only benefit attached to making sure your air filter is always clean either. Cleaner air filters mean fewer allergens and toxins being released into the air you and your loved ones breathe. They also mean increased fuel efficiency and an engine life that will last up to twice as long as one attached to a unit with neglected filters.

Locating Your Air Filter

Of course, understanding that you need to change your air filter on a frequent basis and actually figuring out where to find it are two different animals. Let’s take a closer look at how you can locate yours.

Most air conditioning systems and furnaces have filters that are located inside the blower area of the unit. Alternatively, they may be found in the ceiling return air grille. Some furnaces and A/C units that are located in garage areas or inside closets may alternatively have filters located toward the bottom of the blower area.

The filter, once you locate it, is easy to recognize. It is screen like in appearance and will be easily removed. You can obtain fresh filters easily and inexpensively at any store that has a home maintenance section. Keep a fresh supply on hand at all times and change your filter out frequently – at least once every few months.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
