This stress to the HVAC system apparently can even cause the system to overheat if it goes too long without an updated air filter.
I’ve always been grateful to my parents for bringing me up in such a positive and loving way. I was taught how to be responsible at an early age. One of the first important duties I had was to change the air filters regularly for the HVAC system. This certainly wasn’t a difficult chore to have, but it sure was important! I learned that if I failed to change the air filters on time, it would make the air quality bad in the household. Then my mother would have to go around vacuuming and dusting like crazy only to have the dust and dirt come flowing back into the household. This is because an old air filter can’t filter all the dust and contaminants that it is supposed to. It gets congested and blocked up, and it can also cause the HVAC system to stress a great deal. This stress to the HVAC system apparently can even cause the system to overheat if it goes too long without an updated air filter. Learning all of these things from my father, I had a great deal of pride in my particular HVAC system maintenance chore. It actually made me curious about all the other aspects of the HVAC system. When the HVAC professional would come over, I would ask him questions, and happily he would answer all of them! I learned so much from all the HVAC professionals that would come over, I felt like I could do the work on my own. Eventually, I decided to become an HVAC professional too.
