I am pretty superb at remembering things, but sometimes I have a mental block.
- One thing I could never remember to do, no matter how several times I wrote it on the calendar, was to change the a/c air filter each week.
My dad constantly taught me that the easiest thing I could do to help my a/c live a longer life was to upgrade the a/c air filter on time. I am sure it is true, too, because when I change out the air filter, I can see all the dog hair and dust that is stuck in it. The problem is, I was never able to remember. That is, until I discovered the convenience of getting an a/c air filter subscription service. I signed up for the air filter subscription, and like clockwork every week, the air filter arrives at my front door. Then, I do not have to remember that it is time to upgrade it. I simply see the air filter there at the door and after that I bring it in the house and go upgrade the old air filter with the new one. It costs me $8 per week, which is not too much more than it would cost to go to the hardware store myself and buy it. I like to think the extra dollar or so that the a/c filter service costs me is worth it because I am genuinely helping our a/c to live longer by replacing the filters like the manufacturer recommends. I guess some people would consider it wasteful, but I am cheerful about my choice.
