I put off my AC for too long

I have always had a problem with being a procrastinator.

  • Why do today what can be put off until tomorrow, that’s my motto.

Of course this has gotten me into trouble more times than I can count, so you would think I’d learn my lesson. No, I am lazy down to my core, so that lesson never got learned. I understand I need to change my behavior, I just always put it off until tomorrow. See how that works? It’s so easy anyone can do it! All kidding aside, recently my bad habits got me into another spot of trouble. I knew that I should take better care of my central HVAC system, but it was still working so I just never did. When the AC finally died it was in the middle of the summer, the worst possible time to be stuck without air conditioning! I called the repair tech out to take a look at it, and he just shook his head and asked why I hadn’t ever changed the air filter. I told him I had forgotten, which is mostly true, and he explained to me how a little thing like an air filter can bring down the entire HVAC system if you let it. The dirtier the air filter gets, the harder the system has to work to circulate the air. All the extra strain on the air conditioner, especially at this humid time of year, will put more strain on the components and lead to all manner of trouble. One little air filter caused all this trouble.
