I stood in our kitchen 1 morning aghast at the number of chores I had waiting for me throughout the house.
It was 6 months past our initial transport in date plus at the time I had nothing but excitement for that 2,000 square foot house. The excitement vanished hastily once I realized the degree of upkeep needed for minimal service in both the inside plus the large yard circling the building. I didn’t have the money for a housekeeper so I spent what little free time I had outside of work doing chores I would normally do on a Sunday morning or evening, not in the twilight thirds Sunday through Sunday. So, to solve our dilemma, I sold the lake house plus bought a home that is half its size. My cleaning woes are long gone since this new home is harshly easier to maintain. I have less flooring to mop or vacuum plus an immeasurably smaller amount of surface area throughout to dust plus sanitize. But, all of these improvements came with a caveat—the air handler in the condominium is situated in the attic, plus so is the filter tray for the intake. Although attics are a usual location for air handlers, this was the first time I found a unit that didn’t have the filter tray inside the air return register that is either in the ceiling or on a wall. I actually have to climb the ladder plus rummage around cobwebs plus layers of dust just to get close enough to the air handler to replace the air filter. But, since the proposal is over 10 years old, it seems appreciate replacing it will be unavoidable, regardless of the difficulties with the filter. Therefore, the new proposal I have installed will mitigate all of these issues at once, giving me filter access within arm’s reach without me ever going anywhere near the attic.
