When our air conditioner stopped working right, we were really worried that it was going to cost a lot to repair it.
We bought this house just over a year-and-a-half ago.
A lot has gone wrong since then. First of all, the plumbing had some severe issues. Then a support beam in the bathroom floor needed to be replaced. So, we were concerned about a major HVAC repair and how much money that would set us back. However, it could not be avoided, so I called and HVAC repair person to come out and take a look. The first thing that she noticed was that there was a lot of suction where the air filter goes. She said that is unusual and usually indicates that clog in the intake vent. I had noticed a similar suction since we moved in. Whenever I would change the air filter it seems like I had to fight to get the old one out and to put the new one in. I did not know this was unusual. The cover to the air intake vent was soon removed and the technician discovered the problem. There was an old air filter in the air invent! It did not belong there so I had never thought to look for it. The misplaced air filter was filthy dirty and had probably been there for several years. I was grossed out that my family had been breathing that dirty air for the past two years. well the air conditioner repair woman close the vet back up and we all could immediately feal the difference; our air conditioner was blowing so much freer. My husband and I are both glad that it turned out to be such an easy and inexpensive fix.
