filters are typically installed on the return air side of the unit
therefore the arrow should be pointed at the unit.

Yes, so this appears to be a downflow unit and the arrow should be pointing down.
Although IMO, on that type of filter, it doesn't matter that much.

Most importantly, pay close attention to the flue vents. CO is a hazard in our industry.
I put together a useful write up on carbon monoxide. Hope it's useful.
