I will never forget when I got our actually first central heating and in our house, but i had never had central heating and a/c before and did not assume the regular basics that almost everyone should know! You would have figured just turn on the control unit and go right? Well, think it or not I didn’t understand the concept of air filters! I ended up going for almost a year without increasing the air filter of our central heating and
It would have possibly been even longer had the indoor air conditions of our lake house not gone downhill and if I did not call the local heating and a/c dealer to do an annual heating and tune up and check up.
The heat and specialist that was doing the tune up asked me how long it had been since I changed our air filter. I asked “what is an air filter?”, she thought I was joking! She went on to tell me all about air filters and then it all made sense to me. Ever since then I have consistently been actually careful of the air filter in the central heating and unit. I make sure and change out the air filter once a week, even if it absolutely doesn’t need to be changed. This is something I have been doing now for over 20 years, and it is a absolutely good thing that I am not on top of things when it comes to air filters and our central heating and unit!
