I waited longer than I should have to change my HVAC filter

I’ve been really busy over the last couple of months.

  • I had to take on a ton of overtime at work just to maintain my job.

Because my boss had to let go of several employees, I was told that working the overtime hours was not an option. At the same time, it means I’ve been able to save money and put away some cash that I normally wouldn’t have on hand. I’ve been able to eat now at expensive restaurants just as a treat for all the hard work too. It’s nice getting some kind of form of reward for all of this intense effort that I’ve been putting in at work. It would be really nice to get a break from the overtime eventually, but at least I’m making use of the money. Being so busy is making me forget some of my most important responsibilities. Usually I don’t wait so long to change the filters in my air conditioners, but I’ve been so busy lately that I put it off for 6 weeks. Usually I change my air conditioner filters every 4 weeks, but in this case I left it in longer. Next time I think I’m going to buy a stack of air conditioner filters and leave them somewhere in the house where I’ll see them on a regular basis. That way seeing the air conditioner filters will remind me to replace the old one in my HVAC system currently. With frequent HVAC filter changes comes better HVAC performance. I just wish that HVAC filters were cheaper than they are.
