I have been working as an HVAC technician for about ten years now.
I went to school to study HVAC systems so I am very confident in my abilities to work on heating and cooling systems. I have never run into any situation with an HVAC system that I could not figure out. I know that I might come off sounding cocky, but I just know what I am talking about when it comes to heating and cooling. I have been going on house calls to fix HVAC system for so long now that there is not one situation that will surprise me. Well, that is what I thought until I got a call from an elderly woman last week asking me to come out to her house because her HVAC system was clogged. I didn’t know what she meant when she said her HVAC system was clogged, but I loaded up my van and went out to her house. When I arrived at the elderly woman’s home, I asked her to show me her HVAC system and explain further what was wrong. She told me that her HVAC system was clogged because she didn’t know how to change her filters. I thought the fix would be as easy as showing her how to change the filter. However, once I opened up the HVAC unit, I saw that she hadn’t changed her filter in what seemed like years. I asked when the last iem she had her HVAC filter changed and she it had been a few years. I was shocked because I have never heard of anyone going this long without changing their HVAC system!
