The Air Filter Hadn’t Been Replaced in A Year

My HVAC system has been acting funny lately and I haven’t been satisfied with how my home is being heated or cooled.

I guess I complained one too many times to my sister, because the other day, she sent me the link for a local HVAC company.

I looked at it, but decided not to call them. I didn’t want to spend the money on hiring an HVAC professional, and I assumed my HVAC system would eventually work itself out. A few weeks passed and I received a really high utility bill. This is when I realized that if I didn’t hire an HVAC professional, then my utility bill would continue to rise and I’d end up paying more in utility costs than if I just hired someone! I found the number my sister sent me and scheduled an appointment for the following day. I was really nervous about the appointment, because I didn’t know what they were going to find. I already didn’t want to pay for the HVAC tuneup, so I definitely didn’t want to pay more money to have something fixed. What the HVAC professional told me though was a complete surprise. After servicing the entire HVAC system, he came back to me holding my old air filter. The moment I saw him walking toward me with the air filter, I knew what the problem was. The air filter hadn’t been replaced in almost a year and it was thick with dust. My HVAC system wasn’t working because the air couldn’t get through the air filter efficiently!
