View Full Version : Where is the Air Filter in My CA/heat system?!
06-30-2005, 04:03 PM
I recently bought a new (to me!) home, and it has a 1983 Ruud central air/heating system that still works. Where is the air filter? I have checked in the furnace/waterheater closet, but have yet to see it. Do I have to take the thing apart to find it, and if so, how? Please advise. Also, please don't comment on my ignorance for such things...I have never had a central air system that is so old and I can't afford to break it just now. Thank you

it should be in the return air part of your system. either a filter grille on the wall or possibly where your return duct connects to your furnace/airhandler. maybe post some pics or ask a neighbor. hard to be exact from my couch.
look for a grill in the celing of a hallway with two thumb screws or spring clips
look at your furnace - it will be at one of the ends of the furnace
or wherever your returns are

fordellcastle - as much as we preach to people about changeing the filter i doubt anyone will give you a hard time - as far as I am concerned your all right - makes our lives easier - getting called out to a house in middle of the night to find the air filter was plugged and have them try to stiff you on the bill aint fun. Good luck and ask away!!!

Thank you all-I found it and changed it. It still isn't cooling like it should, though. I will call a pro tomorrow-and pay him, too!
