Location of Filter in my Gas Heater & How to Replace?


I have an old gas-powered heater in my apartment (pics below) and I would like to know where the filter is so that I can replace it.

There is the tall, main unit with the pilot light in the bottom (that small panel is easily removed).

Hot air blows from the top part of the tall unit. This is the area where I want to replace the filter because it blows the vast majority of the hot air.

Then there is an additional, small blower on top of the main heater.

The heater is connected to a Lux 500 thermostat.

That looks like a basic wall heater. They typically don't use filters.
You should be able to remove the front panel fairly easily to check out inside the unit.
