Recently, I was hanging out with some of our friends plus they got to talking about cleaning the filters on their heating, ventilation plus A/C units! I was shocked to hear that they clean their heating, ventilation plus A/C filters at least once a month.
- I had no plan that they needed to be changed that frequently.
Come to think of it, I was completely unaware of when the last time I had cleaned our heating, ventilation plus A/C filters was. I nodded along with our friends, but I knew I had not been doing what I was supposed to do; however the next morning, I took the time to clean all our filters. I turned the heating, ventilation plus A/C units off plus unlinked all the filters, sure enough, they were caked with dirt plus dust. I took all of the filters outside plus 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 replaced all the filters plus dusted off the surfaces of all of the heating plus cooling vents. I even cleaned the baseboards. Once I realized how much I was slacking, I realized that it really was not nice for me to be breathing in dirty plus dusty air like this. I kind of freaked myself out! From now on, I am going to make it a serious priority to clean our heating plus cooling filters once a month at minimum. I even set a reminder on our iphone.
