I was embarrassed when I had some old buddies come to visit my house.
They said it was great that I was a homeowner, but I had to do something about the air quality.
I felt dumb when we were all looking at my air filter that hadn’t been changed in several months. They were 3 month air filters, but it must’ve been 5 months since I changed it and my HVAC system actually was struggling. It was something that just slipped my mind to be honest, but my buddies said I had to be careful about that sort of thing. They let me know that not only does the HVAC struggle with a blocked up air filter, but it can cause serious damage to the system because of the lack of airflow. They said I didn’t want to have an overheated system and end up with a crack in the heat exchanger, because that would mean having to buy a new HVAC system entirely. That didn’t sound like something I would be able to afford, so next thing I knew, we were at the local hardware store looking at the air filters I needed for my system. My buddies were saying that they were so expensive and in the future I should think about buying my air filters online. Because I needed to change the air filter immediately, I bought just one air filter. When we got back to my house, they showed me a good website to buy air filters from, and they were way cheaper than the prices at the store with free 3 day shipping.
