I have an older Heil gas furnace, I need to replace the filters, but have no idea where they go. I know here are two, and that they sit at an angle, but can't remember how to access the place they belong.

Hello, it depends what type of filters you are using, if you have the pleated filters such as the 3m brand they should be changed every three months If you are using the blue filters they should be changed every month.
That is hard to answer but I would say that for a furnace of that size you are probably looking at somewhere around 16x20x1. On older heil furnaces they often had the filter mounted inside the blower compartment so if the case you can just remove the cover and measure it. If not it should be located on the return air duct close to the furnace. Hope this helps you some. Thank you.
Hi, If this is a split system, look in the indoor unit to see if it is at the top, or bottom. This depends on if its a down flow or up flow unit. Sometimes they are in the hallway ceiling behind a grill that drops down. Walk through your home and look up for a grill. Look near the furnace down low also, they will put them in lots of places, but usually near the furnace. If no grill any where, it will have to go inside above or below the blower motor. You should see the opening where it lays with the arrow on the filter pointing in the direction of the air flow. If you have no grill, and there is not one in the furnace, you need to put one where the air is coming back to the unit inside to catch the dust. Please let me know if you found it and please rate me on this as I know you will be kind. Sincerely, Shastalaker7 A/C, & Heating Contractor
Yes, inspect the air intake, exhaust pipe, filter and condensate piping for blockage or moisture. Also check for a hole in the hose that goes from the small exhaust blower to the pressure switch or a bad connection on the switch or control board. You may be able to temporalily jump the switch for diagnostic purposes only.
