You have easily heard about the requirement to maintain your Heating & A/C equipment respectfully however ignored it.
Such was my case until I suffered a very expensive ordeal that made me change our mind.
I had to travel because of a company engagement and took a lot more than I expected. Instead of the few days, I extended our stay away from home for more than one week. I didn’t worry much since I stayed alone and had no dogs to bother me, little did I know that living things are not the only cause of problems whenever 1 is away. I came back to a super stuffy condo that was too hot. My first reaction was that my windows had been closed for too long. A few hours after this, not even our fully opened windows could help. What’s more, it was in the middle of summer, and the sun was generally unforgiving. My air conditioner seemed to run fine, except that it was not cooling any of our rooms. Worrying, I called our Heating & A/C serviceman to come to have a gander. Luckily, he was in our neighborhood and could thus drop by faster than usual. A great inspection and test drive proved that our equipment had overheated for the past more than one weeks. I needed a new thermostat, & a few replacements on the unit. Likely, the device could still operate with a few tweaks. I had neglected the gear and even failed to replace filters for the longest time, which is why it eventually gave in. The cost of repairs at this point was so high that I l acquired our lesson. I ensure to have an expert Heating & A/C provider come around at least two times per year.
