When I walked into our condo this morning, I realized that our condo odored terrible! My partner had been mentioning it for a while, however blatantly, I had been growing so used to the odor that I didn’t even realize that it was there, i searched high and low for the odor, thinking that it was really a plumbing problem! However, when the evening grew cooler and both of us turned off our air conditioner, I realized that our Heating, Ventilation plus A/C component was causing that terrible odor! Immediately, I realized that I was truly an idiot.
I had been using this air conditioner for a few years, and I had never thought to change the air filter on the air conditioner, and they were supposed to be changed or cleaned every few weeksâ€¦ 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 our air conditioner.
I went to the store and bought a new air filter, and I installed it into our air conditioner, but after a few minutes, the condo was cooler and more comfortable, and it didn’t even stink inside our house! From now on, I am going to have to try to remember to change the air filter on our air conditionerâ€¦ Since I only use that Heating, Ventilation plus A/C component in the Summer, I will try to change it before I first plug it in. This way, I will never have to turn the air conditioner off during the morning to scrub it out. Also, the air that I breathe will much much cleaner!
