I have a Rheem Heat and air unit. Model # RGAC-080AW Serial # CM3D104 F4782 4794 and need to find out where the filter for the unit is located.

What filter are you talking about?
Air filter: Usually with a heat and air unit, the air filter is located behind the return air grill.
Return air grill looks similar to ordinary ceiling or floor grill where the hot or cold air blows into each room. Except the return air grill is larger and is usually put close to the heat-air unit.
Remove the grill and replace filter every 3-6 months.
If no filter is present, then dust and hair get stuck on the coils and unit will not meet temperature setting.
See image of typical air filter:

How to Change Your Car's Air Filter

A car is similar to a human in the way it breathes, burns energy and expels waste. Changing an air filter on your car is a vital necessity and one which if left for too long, restricts the car's breathing and can cause major problems. Having new and regularly replaced air filters, ensures your car's engine has fresh, unimpeded air flowing through it.
Here is how to change your car's air filter:
  1. Purchase the correct air filter for your car, model and engine size. Consult your owner's handbook to retrieve the part number. Have the correct tools for the job at hand before you start, which are: a flat-blade screwdriver, a Phillips screwdriver and an air hose compressor.
  2. Secure the car by placing the the gear lever into Park and by applying the parking brake. Open the bonnet (hood) using the in-car bonnet release and secure it with the prop rod.
  3. The air filter is usually shrouded with plastic tubing on the top of the engine. Older cars usually have large, circular compartments, while new, fuel injected cars have a square air filter housing. To make sure, check the owner's handbook for reference.
  4. Loosen the air filter housing, hose clamps and screws (making sure you remember or number them in there respective place). Take out the paper, gauze or cotton based air filter.
  5. Clean out the filter's housing, using an air compressor or a dry cloth if this is not an option. Vacuum out any loose dirt and dust, ensuring there are no particles left.
  6. Install the new filter, ensuring it is in the same direction and it is exactly the same as the old filter unit.
  7. Replace the air filter housing and all of the retaining screws and clamps. Make sure the housing is on straight and is secured. If it is not, then it could cause poor fuel efficiency.
  8. Double check all of the screws, clamps and housing parts are replaced properly, shut the bonnet and start the engine to ensure there are no strange noises.
  9. Check the filter after 200kms to ensure all of the fixtures are still tight. Re-tighten if necessary. Remember to change you filter every 15,000km or once a year.

Is there any filters to change for air conditioning

Yes, there should always be filters in your heating and air conditioning system. Assuming you are asking about a central heat and air system for a home or business, the filters will be located in the return section, basically where ever the air flow is getting sucked back into the system. More updated systems will have the filter in a filter grill inside the home or business, while older systems can have them inside the unit itself, usually above the unit inside. Hope this helps with what you were asking for, if you needed info on another type of system, feel free to ask. Good luck!

I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix and want to change the air filter. Stupid question, but where is it located?

right beside the engine (the engine is in the middle) in a black box usually over a wheel. The black box will have clips (3-4) that you need to unhook. lift the box apart (might have to use some strength) take the old filter out. its about an inch thick. clean out the bottom of the box out of some debris. install the new filter positioned like the old on. close the clips. if the clips connect then youve install it properly.

Can I remove the air filter to clean it or do I need to buy a new air filter to replace the old one?

i have a similar unit and noticed not much air was coming out and unit was not getting as cold so i looked at the filter and it had caked on dirt.So i removed it then it got my air compressor and went outside then blew all the dust from the unit now it works like new.Some people wash out the dirt but this ruins the filters.Make sure you wear something to cover your face from the dirt you would be surprised how much dust comes out of these units.

How often do I need to have my airconditioning system serviced?

Great question.....with general homeowner maintenance of cleaning outdoor unit and changing filters, I would say every couple years. BUT, if unit is older and you cant keep up with service yourself, once a year is the general rule of thumb. If you can keep things cleaned and filter changed, I would say every 2-3 years just to make sure efficiency is high enough.

I cannot find the model number on an older model Carrier Air

you should be able to remove the front cover and access the filters and a date sticker that tells the model no. The filters are likely to be reusable filters instead of disposable.

The covers of those through the wall systems are held on with clips or clips and hooks.

They can typically be removed by two methods.
1) pull the bottom out and then lift up and out.
2) lift the cover straight up and then pull out.

Some units have the filter mounted to the unit, others have it mounted to the inside of the cover.

There is no filter (was not installed) in the bottom of my unit (inside) air handler.... Why not? Now I am having problems...could this by why???

The new rheem and Ruud units have to have a filter rack installed in the unit. If it is an older unit the rack is inside the unit. You need to pull bottom cover of unit. I do not know why the new units do not com with filter racks and I have asked the distributor this question.Rusty

How do I change the filter in my Ruud Achiever series

I'd look in one of 2 areas.

1. often there is a central return in the house. This is the place where the air gets pulled back to the unit and is likely very close to your thermostat. Check for a filtered louvered grill there and see if your filter is located here. If so, you can access the filter by opening the filter frame with a screwdriver or even a coin.

2. Otherwise I would expect that your filter is on the return-air side of your air handler (where the blower is) Older models have the filter actually inside the air handler in the blower compartment. Newer models may have a small separate filter door. I'd look in these areas.

hope this helps
