Just wondering if there is a filter on the model because i never knew to change it . It is in a crawl space 7 hrd to even see if there is a space for a filter.

Should have a filter in return air grille. It may have set off smoke alarm because of the electric heat coming on without pump. It sometimes happens the first time you fire up heat. If no filter in unit you should have one in return air grille. It will be in wall close to floor or possibly in floor. Russ
