This should be relatively easy, but there are a few steps to follow. The first is to cut power to the heat pump by finding the circuit breaker in the main electric panel. Then you need to find the filter access door or panel. I tried looking yours up from the model numbers you supplied, but couldn't find anything. If you have the brand and model that would be easier.
Look for the filter. You may be able to see it, but generally it is near the blower (below it most likely). It should be relatively easy to pull it out, but note which side is up and which is down. After you do this you may want to wipe the area down to wash away built up dust and debris. You also should check the filter to see what size it is as well as type.
If you have a filter ready slide it in, make sure it is secure and right side up, and then shut the access panel or door. Go to the main electric panel and restore power.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present. To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
