I had never inquired about equipment service or maintenance because I didn’t know that my air quality control devices required extra attention
A few years ago I had the strangest thing happen. Everybody around me seemed to be getting sick, one after the next. This was before covid was in the air, so it seemed extremely strange to have every social associate fall ill within a defined period of time. To make things more complicated, it seemed like everybody got sick after they came over and spent time at my house. I could not understand what was going on with everybody in my social circle until the day that my heating, cooling, and air quality control system wasn’t working right. My air conditioning unit was not providing ice cold, dry air as I expected. I decided to call my local heating, cooling, and ventilation Specialists to get some professional help. When the HVAC technician arrived at my house he made a strange face. He looked around and asked if I had ever had my air ducts cleaned out. I told him, I absolutely had never paid for a professional air duct cleaning before nor did I know that that was a necessary task to keep my HVAC running in workable shape. That’s when he started digging deeper into my heating, cooling, and ventilation system. It turns out, I was using the wrong air filter for my air conditioning unit and forced air furnace. I had never inquired about equipment service or maintenance because I didn’t know that my air quality control devices required extra attention. Therefore, I had no idea that my ductwork was filled with mold and mildew. Every time my friends came over to visit, they got a huge lungful of polluted indoor air. My social circle wasn’t randomly getting sick all around me, they were fighting off the illnesses that lived within my heating, cooling, and air quality control system.
