When I walked into my new home this day, I realized that my new home odored terrible! My fiance had been mentioning it for a while, but apparently, I had been growing so used to the odor that I didn’t even realize that it was there, but i searched high and low for the odor, thinking that it was easily a plumbing problem, but however, when the evening grew cooler and every one of us turned off our a/c, I realized that our Heating and Air Conditioning unit was causing that bad odor! Immediately, I realized that I was easily an idiot.
I had been using this a/c for a few years, and I had never thought to change the air filter on the a/c! They were supposed to be changed or cleaned every few months, then when I pulled the air filter it, it was covered in mildew and grime, and I realized that I had been breathing in that garbage anytime I was using my a/c.
I went to the store and purchased a new air filter, and I installed it into my a/c, however after a few hours, the new home was cooler and more comfortable, and it didn’t even smell inside my house! From now on, I am going to have to try to remember to change the air filter on my a/c! Since I only use that Heating and Air Conditioning unit in the Summer, I will try to change it before I first plug it in. This way, I will never have to turn the a/c off during the day to scrub it out. Also, the air that I breathe will much much cleaner!
