M.i.a.....where is my hvac filter?


I had a new forced air and central air system installed in my reconstructed house. Two of them actually, unfortunately both by same HVAC company. One of the units is a Conquest 90 furnace, downflow installed in the basement with a coil evaporator instaled between the return plenum and the coil evaporator... WHERE in this configuration would my filters be? Accoring to the product manual there should 2 of them in a A formation above the blower... however this is where the coil is... would they go inside the box housint the coil? My genious HVAC guy said and I quote " you dont need filters for this unit. Any suggestions? Please, lost in HVAC limbo

Call him, and tell him to either re install the system right.
Or you will pay another contractor to, and send him the bill.

Look in the install instructions. A/C coil is to be installed down wind of the furnace heat exchanger.

Having it before the exchanger, will shorten its life span, and can void the warranty on it.

You've be HACKED.

Sounds like a low ball contractor.
