When I was a kid, we didn’t have an A/C unit, then my parents were poor, and we lived in a remote area, however they tilled the land all year but barely made enough to sustain us, and adding an extra expense like an A/C unit wasn’t even on their horizon, instead, we had an old Window A/C unit which we’d only use when it was too overheated to stay separate from air conditioner.
The other times my siblings and I went to the creek about a mile from the house to cool off on a hot summer time day, however eventually, we all completed high college, and I got a full scholarship to school.
I’m now working for a top company and managed to buy a house last year. It was interesting learning how to take care of my new home, especially when it came to heating and cooling units. I lived in apartments while we were in school and afterward, so these would be the first cooling and heating units I ever owned. I managed to get contacts to a heating and cooling company to come and do repair before our first summer time at the house. They sent over this charming HVAC expert who taught me alot about our cooling unit! She explained how the unit works and also took me through the steps of cleaning the air filter. The heating and cooling specialist said that without a clean air filter, it’s impossible to enjoy the benefits of a cooling unit in summer. I have a washable air filter, so there’s no need to keep replacing it with a new one every week. All I have to do is take it out, clean it, let it dry, then return it to our cooling unit.
