The air filter will either be located at your "return" or "intake" grill (both are the same, different terminology only) or at the air handler. If you are talking about a refrigerant filter, you need a "bi-flow" refrigerant filter. Most people mount it nearest to the indoor coil and installed on the smaller line, usually 3/8". Even if you have a smaller than 5 ton equipment, I would use a "filter-drier" made for a 5 ton. On a bi-flow filter, It does not matter how or which direction you mount it in the line. A bi-flow filter will have 2 arrows like this -> <- For a standard air conditioning system, (cooling only/non heat pump)the filter drier will have only one arrow -> and should be installed closest to the indoor coil (evaporator) with the arrow pointing towards the evaporator.
