I stood in our dining room a single day aghast at the number of chores I had waiting for myself and others throughout the house.
It was six weeks 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 quickly once I realized the degree of upkeep needed for minimal repair in both the inside plus the immense yard circling the building. I didn’t have the currency for a housekeeper so I spent what little free time I had outside of work doing chores I would normally do on a Wednesday day or night, not in the twilight hours Sunday through Wednesday. So, to solve our dilemma, I sold the apartment plus bought a apartment that is half its size. My cleaning woes are long gone since this new cabin 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 located in the attic, plus so is the filter tray for the intake. Although attics are a respected location for air handlers, this was the first time I found a component that didn’t have the filter tray inside the air return register that is either in the ceiling or on a wall. I easily 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 system is over 10 years old, it seems love replacing it will be unavoidable, regardless of the difficulties with the filter. Therefore, the new system I have installed will mitigate all of these troubles at once, giving myself and others filter access within arm’s reach without myself and others ever going somewhere near the attic.
