Regular quality AC repair was never something I anticipated when I obtained an electric heat pump from the local air conditioner dealership.
I was head over heels for the Heating plus A/C method that I disregarded anything that seemed like a con.
It was the type of cooling system setup that I had always wanted. The air conditioner pro had come to deliver a HEPA filter plus repair the digital temperature control. It turned out that the old temperature control unit was okay. It was the Heating plus A/C that needed work. I felt cheated. After the equipment upgrade, I could enjoy great air quality plus indoor comfort levels with little or no effort from myself. I called a friend who is a cooling expert but works with commercial HVACs plus asked if the whole thing about correct maintenance was necessary or if it was just another way of getting money from homeowners. The first thing he did was laugh at me plus then went on to tell me that just like everything else, HVAC units need correct maintenance to run smoothly plus efficiently. I was even surprised that even the HVAC vents and ducts need cleaning, plus here I thought they would always be clean since I have an AC filter. I then resigned to my fate of having to schedule a repair schedule with the air conditioner tech, not just for the unit but also for the digital temperature control, and from then on, I took it upon myself to read more about cooling systems since it was an entirely up-to-date concept. I felt a little embarrassed when I remember my reaction when the tech told me about correct air conditioner care, plus to guess that it was only a minor embarrassing thing that happened to me when it came to culture shock.
