Is your furnace in the basement, or main level, or attic?
Hi, Gary. Can you help?
In the crawlspace -- a tall crawlspace. House is on a hill. AC unit is outside.
ok, you have supply registers (small, and these are the ones that air blows out of) then you have return' where air is sucked back to the furnace, these are much larger, and can also be on the floor or near ceiling.
do you see the bigger return grills?
Not there now. But, yes, I recall them.
if you do take a flash light if needed as sometimes the filters are located behind these grills
if so most of the time they will have hinges on one side, and latches to open them up on the other side so you can change them
next place would be in the crawl space, and you would need to remove the furnace/air handler doors, and it would be in the blower compartment.
OK. I looked at one -- no dice and no hinges (screws). I think there's another. Will check.So -- the filters may be in the return registers in the house, not in the unit like I'm used to?
Or in the blower.
How hard is it to remove the furnace / handler doors? (I didn't see any obvious ones.)
last place it would be in the crawl space, and in the duct right before its hooked to the furnace, it may have a metal slide that looks like the duct itself, that you need to slide away to remove the filter
you will have 2 doors upper an lower, you just slide them up and off
Got it. Have seen those metal slides before on other units. Didn't see one last time.
some units have a scew driver hold, so you just use a screw driver on the tabs and turn side ways and the doors will come right off
Will try the doors and other return register.
if its in the furnace/air handler itself, it will be in the blower compartment held in by a spring clasp usually
let me know when you get home, if you need more help
Is there a way to know for sure for my model number? I tried calling Bryant, but they were of no help.
No it is up to the installer, where he decides to put the filter rack furnace/return duct/ return grill
Oh joy! OK. I'll go hunt when I get there. It's a vacation home, so will be a few days. Thanks for your help!
your welcome if you need more help after getting there just reply and i will reply back
