There are,to be precise, two filters in the air handling unit that must be changed every so often: one in the discharge ducting, the other in the air return system. Both filters help get rid of airborne particles picked up from all over your home; particles on the order of dust, fluff, dust mites, insects, and smoke residue. In the main, HEPA filters are used, but there are other sorts of decent filters that can be good for allergy sufferers.

Geothermal system air filters are typically disposable. Replace them every three months.
