whisper heat by lennox filter change
I can't figure out how to change a furnace filter. I have taken off the top panel and there's nothing indicating a place where the filter is. HELP!

Typically if there isnt a filter rack on the out side of the furnace then the filter sometimes will be in the blower compartment on the R.A. side or bottom if on a box

okay, I'm not really sure what the R.A. side is. Everything looks enclosed and there doesn't seem to be a rack. Last year when it was being fixed, the repair guy just brought the filter up and showed me the old one. Stupid me for not watching him change it!!!!

return air if its an upflow furnace then take the bottom panel off

I think it's the bottom panel then, but it doesn't seem to want to come off.

Set a reminder in your Cell phone, or if you have Yahoo, or Google, you can use the Calendars on them to set reminders. If you have a iPhone, you can also find some apps that allow for home maintenance tracking.
