The week before Thanksgiving, our condo becomes nearly unidentifiable to me. And, it all happens so fast. Is there some sort of secret advanced staging I’m not aware of? My partner must have a bunker below the condominium where plans and situations are developed. Next thing I know, I wake to an empty condo which now resembles a Winter Wonderland flashback. All the holiday stuff now proliferates throughout the lake condo as though it was there all along. This is my signal to go to the hardware store to buy heating and AC air filters. Huh? I suppose this seems completely incongruous. But, it’s true. My partner burns candles around the holidays love it was the day after armageddon plus there is no more electricity. The candles are everywhere. All the scents converging to overpower our meager nose. So, what is the gas furnace and AC connection you might ask? Several years past, the gas furnace was not responding well to temperature control changes. The heating and cooling plan labored badly, making me worry it was about to break down. I checked to be sure ductwork vents were unplugged; they were. I then went to check the main gas furnace and AC return plus air filter. The furnace filter was just befouled. It was smokey looking with air garbage stuck all over it. The air filter looked as though it had never been changed. I was lost as I attempted to understand what caused this air filter disfigurement. Yep, it was the all the candles. That was the first year our lake condo got lit up love a Colonial house. The candles burn the wax. The wax then dissipates into the air. Next stop, air filter. Christmas lasts a minimum of two months so, I stock up with at least four gas furnace filter changes during this period.
