Locating your furnace filter can be somewhat difficult but it is typically located near the fan. Furnace filters can also be found behind panels, inside a duct opening or behind other equipment. They are used to prevent things from damaging components. It is very important to have a furnace filter installed because without it the airflow in your furnace will suffer. Poor airflow can cause cracking, warping, carbon monoxide leaks or even a fire. Make sure you have your furnace filter properly maintained and installed to prevent these issues.
