Last month, I was talking to my husband about the air filters. I told him about all of the information I had found on the importance of changing the air filters. He told me that he took care of all of that stuff, and I didn’t need to worry about it. I never saw him buy any air filters for the furnace. I didn’t even know what the air filters for the furnace looked like. I knew that he pulled the air filter out of the air conditioner quite often, but I didn’t know where they were, or what they looked like. He just told me that air conditioner air filter was taken care of. I was really pondering what would happen if he were gone one year, and I had to do the air filter changing. He showed me where the air filters were for the AC and he walked me through changing it. I asked about the furnace air filter and asked me if I trusted him. We have been together for over twenty years, so there must be some trust there. He told me there were no air filters in our furnace. I thought he was kidding. He explained to me that we had a boiler. We had an oil heating unit that heated the water. The only filter in the oil heater, was a fuel filter and he changed it every time he did maintenance on the oil heater. I didn’t know if I wanted to slap him for being cagey or laugh at him.
