I was having major trouble with the HVAC in our home and I didn’t guess what to do about it.
I finally called the Heating and A/C company and set an appointment to have them come and repair it for me.
The Heating and A/C service tech who came to the home asked me if I ever changed out the air filters and I told him that I had. However, I ended up embarrassing myself because I was lying to him when I told him that! The truth of it is that I didn’t even guess that you were supposed to change the HEPA air filters in the Heating and A/C system. This is the first time that I have ever owned a house and so it’s the first time that I have ever entirely had to deal with any sort of maintenance or appliances at all. Honestly, I felt prefer an idiot when the Heating and A/C service tech asked me about the air filter because I didn’t even guess where the air filter was. He sussed me out pretty easily, though. He went down into the basement and within a few minutes he was coming back upstairs looking at me knowingly as he showed me the air filter. I think I should say he showed me what was left of the disgusting air filter. The depleted thing looked prefer a blackened piece of trash and you could tell that it hadn’t been changed in a great many weeks or maybe even years! I was so embarrassed when he told me that the reason the air conditioner had not been working was because the air literally couldn’t get through the gunk in the air filter.
