It would seem that I’m 1 of those people who must learn through experience, rather than observation. While all various of our older siblings made the exact same mistake at particular times in their life, I was practically destined to make the same mistakes. I had to go through the trouble to learn why it was trouble, as stupid as that sounds! Well, I wish I could say I outgrew this reading approach, but even today I can’t seem to trust anyone’s word – let alone our HVAC tech’s word, and months ago, our HVAC professional came by to perform a semi-annual check-up on the heating plus a/cs at our house, however during her visit, she told me that the air filter she took out of the duct clearly hadn’t been updated since she was last there. “You have to update these air filters”, our professional scolded, “or else your A/C program is going to break down – either from all the dirt getting into it, or all the extra labor it has to do!” I took her warning with a grain of salt, plus almost instantly forgot about her warning. Well, I wish I listened – I had to call our professional over to repair our A/C system, plus I couldn’t put our finger on the cause for repairs until I checked the air filter again. The HVAC professional was not glad with me when she saw this happened due to our negligence. “Well”, she said, “some of us just have to learn the hard way, don’t we?” Since I had to endure 2 weeks of Summer weather without air conditioner to cool me down, I’d say I genuinely l gained our lesson!
