When our partner & I first moved in together, I was surprised about how strict she was about keeping the cabin impeccably clean & staying up with all the Heating & Air Conditioning plan maintenance.
She even insisted that the two of us have the HVAC duct cleaned once per year which I thought was overkill.
I regularly thought you could have the HVAC duct cleaned once per 7 years depending on what air filters you use & if you have pets. If you had pets, I would say clean the HVAC duct every other year to be safe. Well, the two of us don’t have pets so I don’t assume why she pushes for us to cover all this pricey maintenance. I do have to disclose though, I’ve never appreciated such relaxing air quality in our cabin & I assume that’s because of her insisting on all this Heating & Air Conditioning maintenance. The two of us finally decided to enroll into an Heating & Air Conditioning repair plan to save some cash. When she saw the extra Heating & Air Conditioning repair plan, she wanted to go for that. They supply you with HEPA air filter changes & cover everything else including the correct HVAC duct cleaning, then ever since the two of us went with this repair plan, the two of us have been saving a small fortune. She’s ecstatic about saving the cash however says the two of us should save it up to get something really nice like radiant radiant heated floors. I assume that when she suggests something like that, there will likely be no choice in the matter. I could argue for getting something else like a geothermal heat pump, however she would ultimately say the two of us need to go for what she wants.
