Cleaning all the heating, ventilation and A/C filters

Recently, I was hanging out with some of our friends as well as they got to talking about cleaning the filters on their heating, ventilation and A/C units, and I was shocked to hear that they clean their heating, ventilation and A/C filters at least once a week.

I had no system that needed to be changed that frequently! Come to consider it, I was unaware of when the last time I had cleaned our heating, ventilation and A/C filters was.

I nodded along with our friends, but I knew I had not been doing what I was supposed to do… The next afternoon, I took the time to clean all our filters. I turned the heating, ventilation and A/C units off as well as disconnected all the filters, then sure enough, they were caked with dirt as well as dust. I took all of the filters outside as well as cleaned them off using the garden hose. Then, I laid them out until they were completely dry. It took about an hour in total. I substituted all the filters as well as dusted off the surfaces of all of the heating as well as cooling vents. I even cleaned the baseboards! Once I realized how much I was slacking, I realized that it truly was not superb for myself and others to be breathing in dirty as well as dusty air. I kind of freaked myself out! From now on, I am going to make it a priority to clean our heating as well as cooling filters once a week at minimum. I even set a reminder on our PC.
