I bought this house about 2 years ago. I tried to change the filter, when I noticed the filter access is BEHIND the unit. I think the installer got lazy and instead of re-routing the pipes up and over or down and across the floor, they did it this way. That white box is the filter section. As you can see the pipes are in the way. I have to crawl behind the unit to access the filter. I found the original installer from the previous owner and they are ignoring me. I showed these photos to 2 other HVAC companies for an estimate, and they both agreed that someone screwed up here. Your thoughts please!
Placement of the unit in the eave corner.
Filter Section with pipes blocking. The access to the filter is on the other side.
