It’s not too tough to look after the heating and cooling equipment in my home.
This is something I’ve been doing now for nearly 20 years.
When we bought this house, it was our first time being homeowners. I sort of fell naturally into that role as having my own home has always been a top priority for my life. I grew up inside apartments. I really didn’t like not having our own home and the heating and cooling equipment was always old and overwhelmed. For sure, I’m thankful for the way I was raised and my parents are gems. But we didn’t have a lot of money so homeownership just wasn’t in the picture. So when I finished up four years inside a dorm room with radiant heating during college, I was eager to start saving for a downpayment. That also meant getting back to apartment living and more questionable HVAC units. However, I saved every penny and then when I got married, we pooled our savings to buy this house. And the first thing we did was to replace the residential HVAC with the new HVAC equipment. That’s the same HVAC unit that hasn’t given us a moment’s problem over all of these years. But we were sure to get semi annual HVAC maintenance done on the central HVAC unit every single year. And I’ve always been on top of my quality heating and air responsibilities. I always change the dirty air filter on time and I make sure that the HVAC equipment has unobstructed air flow inside and out. The rest, I leave in the capable hands of the HVAC professionals.
