I explained to him that his filters need to be changed regularly every 1-2 months to prevent build up of dust and dirt and allow his system to run efficiently
I have always been Mr. Fix it. When I grew up, my father taught me everything that I know today. From car and HVAC repairs, to painting, building stuff, and drywall, and plumbing, he taught me so many useful skills that I used throughout my whole life. I never had to call a technician or a professional to fix anything because I already had the knowledge and experience to do it myself. When I had children, I knew that I wanted to teach them everything that I had once been taught by my father. But, my kids weren’t as welcoming with the things that I hoped to teach them. They were not interested in learning how to change their oil, or repair a furnace, or fix a leaking pipe. Their generation just wants to be in front of a screen all day. When my oldest grew up and bought his own home, he was so lost on home repairs. Of course he called me. Luckily, the new home didn’t need much work done on the inside. The biggest of his worries was his HVAC system. It wasn’t blowing cool enough air when he was trying to run the air conditioning. Of course he called me since he didn’t know what the problem was. Maybe he should have listened to me all of these years. I went to his new home and inspected the air conditioning unit. I checked all of the components and refrigerant. Everything seemed to be fine, except for the air filter. When I pulled the air filter out of the AC, it was covered in so much dirt and dust that you couldn’t even see through it. No telling the last time it was changed. I explained to him that his filters need to be changed regularly every 1-2 months to prevent build up of dust and dirt and allow his system to run efficiently. I installed a clean and new filter for him. I bet he will listen to me this time.
