Did you know that not replacing the air filter often enough can actually cause damage, and in rare cases, destroy your air conditioning unit? I did not know this, and honestly looking back, it is incredible that my heating and A/C machine was not destroyed.
Back when I was younger, I used to maybe replace the air filter out twice a year.
I know, pretty bad. Then again, the air conditioning unit I had died at only 9 years old, so I wonder if that could be a part of it. Anyways, when I learned how much danger I was putting my current furnace and cooling unit in, I made sure to quickly get rid of that habit. The best part is, I don’t even have to remember heating and cooling maintenance, the HVAC service plan I have with the local A/C corporation does that for me. The A/C service plan not only does routine HVAC maintenance checks, but they also offer free A/C emergency services, as well as discounts on certain products in their store. I really benefit from this air conditioning service plan, and that is why I pay a monthly fee to have it. Speaking of which, I think I am actually supposed to have a HVAC tune up pretty soon, since fall is approaching. I have a tune up every spring and fall. If you don’t have an A/C service plan, I would recommend one, it has helped me quite a bit. Otherwise, just make sure you change your A/C filter out often and you should be fine.
