Don’t be surprised to find critters in your AC unit even when it’s clean

A famous screenwriter Rod Serling (1924-1972) who produced “The Twilight Zone” also created a similar series called “Night Gallery” that we viewed in the early 1970s. One memorable part of the series was about an insect referred to as an earwig that finds its way into the main character’s ear. It burrows itself into the man’s brain and emerges out the other side. The man believes his experience is over, but as the episode winds up, he discovers that the insect has laid eggs that will soon hatch to consume his grey matter. Any person who watched that episode still has bad dreams almost 50 years later and the earwig’s image was tarnished forever. Frankly, dust mites, spiders, fruit flies, bed bugs, crickets, moths, ticks and the earwig are quite capable of finding their way into someone’s ear or another bodily cavity where they can possibly lay eggs. The chance of this taking place is low because all of these insects prefer other environments to dwell! Earwigs enjoy setting up a home in rotting wood and all of the pests mentioned above will be quite ecstatic in the confines of your Heating and Air Conditioning system, especially one in need of rigorous cleaning by a qualified Heating and Air Conditioning professional. Insects are attracted to multiple things. They want darkness, some moisture, and a temperature range that often matches what humans prefer. All of these conditions are present even in spotless Heating and Air Conditioning systems which makes the next item much more crucial: A source of nourishment. An insects version of a Denny’s Grand Slam supper is hair, pet dander, skin cells, and any decaying matter. I wonder if any insects living in a home’s Heating and Air Conditioning system can recall startling cable shows. If they do, then the thought of that qualified AC professional coming their way is to them enjoy a startling Night Gallery episode.

 

Don’t be surprised to find critters in your AC unit even when it’s clean

Unlike the scary 1969 movie, an earwig will most likely live in your air conditioner rather than your ear

Screenwriter Rod Serling (1924-1973) of “The Twilight Zone” fame created a familiar series called “Night Gallery” that we watched in the early 1969s. An episode I remember well was about a creature called an earwig that ends up in the main actor’s ear, burrowing itself into the man’s brain and coming out the other side! He behaves like his ordeal is over. But as the episode winds down, he discovers that the insect has left eggs that will soon begin to eat his grey matter! Those of us who saw that episode still experience nightmares almost 50 years later. Not to mention the earwig’s image was tarnished for good. The fact is that dust mites, spiders, fruit flies, bed bugs, crickets, moths, plus ticks in addition to the earwigs can enter someone’s ear or another bodily cavity and possibly lay eggs. The chance of this happening is low because all of these insects prefer other spaces to dwell. A good example of this is earwigs like to nest in rotting wood plus all of the pests mentioned above will be quite comfortable in the confines of your Heating, Ventilation and A/C system. It’s true especially for one in need of thorough dusting by a qualified Heating, Ventilation and A/C expert! Insects are attracted to numerous things. They thrive in darkness, some moisture, plus a temperature range that is similar to what humans prefer. All of these factors exist even in a clean Heating, Ventilation and A/C systems which makes the second item much more important: A source of food. For some insects, their version of a Denny’s Grand Slam meal is hair, pet dander, skin cells, plus any decaying matter. I’m not sure if any of them residing in a home’s Heating, Ventilation and A/C plan remember spine-chilling TV shows. If they do, then the image of that qualified air conditioner specialist headed their way is to them like a spine-chilling Night Gallery show.

The group who watched that episode still have nightmares almost 50 years later and the earwig’s image was never the same again. The reality is that dust mites, spiders, fruit flies, bed bugs, crickets, moths, ticks and the earwig are quite capable of venturing into someone’s ear or another bodily cavity where they can probably lay eggs. The probability of this happening is minute because all of these insects are concerned about other locales. For instance, earwigs prefer to lay eggs in rotting wood and all of the pests mentioned here will be quite ecstatic in the confines of your home A/C system, especially one in need of thorough washing by a qualified HVAC specialist.

A qualified expert is your best option when you have an AC issue

Slow pitch softball is a fantastic game for those not skilled in any way to play baseball.

You can find a league for everybody since in many cases it is a lot of fun with no pressure.

What typically occurs is that after a few seasons, the team gets more skilled. With the input of 1 or more than 2 “ringers’ ‘ (or skilled players), a team begins to shift from just seeking to have fun to a team that wants to achieve a lot. There’s an increase in expectations and the desire to perform builds. This can be challenging to a pitcher who must lob the ball over the plate. The absolutely horrible thing a teammate or director can say when an upset pitcher “loses” the plate and sets off to walk hitters is “Throw Strikes”. What do they believe the pitcher is trying to do? It is like saying to someone “Don’t believe in elephants” which naturally leads to them thinking of the grey pachyderms. Homeowners are in a similar situation when a heating system fails to work, or the cooling unit stops blowing cool air into the house. We all know that a solution is needed. Still, one person will invariably ask “Why don’t you service it?” as if that was a top-notch idea. And just like that upset pitcher, the homeowner may feel coerced to get out his tools and perform a DIY (Do It Yourself) service that will truly not end up well. In softball, the director can simply take out the upset pitcher to prevent more issues. A homeowner’s best idea is to call in a “ringer” in the form of a qualified heating, ventilation and A/C specialist to inspect the broken central cooling and heating AC and do the repairs. The specialist will not be befuddled when instructed to do the crystal clear task of getting your heating, ventilation and A/C program working.

When an AC system has a problem, avoid fixing it yourself and call a technician

Slow pitch softball is a charming athletic activity for those not skilled to play baseball.

There is a team for everybody plus most of the time it is quite fun with little pressure. What usually happens is that after a few seasons, the league gets better. With the presence of 1 or numerous “ringers” (or professional players), a league begins to turn from just wanting to enjoy the sport to a team that wants to win. Desires rise and the need to perform builds. This can be a lot to handle for a pitcher mandated with lobbing the ball over the plate. The absolutely horrendous thing a teammate or coach can say when an anxious pitcher “loses” the plate and starts to walk hitters is “Throw Strikes”. What do they think the pitcher is trying to do? This compares to telling someone “Don’t suppose elephants’ ‘ which naturally leads to a mental notion of the grey pachyderms. Property owners face the same situation when a gas furnace stops working, or the AC unit fails to blow cool air into the house. Each person knows that a solution is needed but someone will invariably ask “Why don’t you repair it?” as if that was a grand idea. And just like the anxious pitcher, the property owner may be pushed to get out his tools and perform a DIY (Do It Yourself) service that will honestly not accomplish much! In softball, the coach can simply replace the anxious pitcher to prevent more destruction. A property owner’s best chance is to call in a “ringer” in the form of a qualified HVAC expert to inspect the broken AC unit and do the repairs. Better yet, that tech will not be taken aback when asked to do the evident task of getting your heating unit running at top efficiency

Call an AC technician when your furnace or HVAC unit fails

Steady throw softball is a fantastic sport for those not proficient enough to engage in baseball.

There is a league for all people and in most cases it is a lot of fun with little durece. In most cases, after a few seasons, the team gains more skills. With the inclusion of a single or more than one “ringers” (or qualified players), a team starts to turn from just loving to have fun to a team that wants to achieve something. Expectations rise and the pressure escalates. This can be a lot to deal with for a pitcher required to lobby the ball over the plate. The absolute worst idea a fellow player or manager can suggest when a skittish pitcher “loses” the plate and begins to walk hitters is “Throw Strikes”. What do they believe the pitcher is trying to do? It’s no different to telling someone “Don’t guess of elephants” which naturally leads to a mental image of the grey pachyderms. House owners face a similar conundrum when an electric furnace fails to ignite, or the HVAC unit stops blowing cool air into the property. Everyone understands that a solution is needed. Still, someone will invariably ask “Why don’t you repair it?” As if that was a novel idea. Similar to the skittish pitcher, the homeowner may be pressured to get out his tools and engage in a DIY (Do It Yourself) repair that will really not accomplish much. In softball, the manager can simply exchange the skittish pitcher to prevent more failure. A homeowner’s best option is to call in a “ringer” in the form of a qualified heating and A/C worker to inspect the broken HVAC unit and do the repairs. The excellent news is that tech will not be dumbfounded when asked to do the obvious work of getting your heating and A/C plan running at peak level.

Don’t be pressured into fixing your AC system by yourself

Softball is a lovely slow pitch activity for those not qualified enough to play baseball.

There is a league for each person plus most of the time it is a lot of fun with little expectations.

What commonly takes place is that after a few seasons, the team improves significantly. With the presence of 1 or 2 “ringers” (or skilled players), a team starts to turn from just wanting to enjoy themselves to a team that wants to win. Expectations rise plus the pressure to perform is on a higher level. This can be overwhelming to a pitcher in charge of lobbing the ball over the plate. The absolute worst thing a teammate or coach can say when a sad pitcher “loses” the plate and starts to walk hitters is “Throw Strikes”. What do they guess the pitcher is trying to accomplish? It is similar to telling someone “Don’t guess of elephants” which naturally leads to a mental picture of the grey pachyderms. Homeowners face a similar scenario when a gas furnace fails to ignite, or the air conditioning system stops blowing cool air into the house. Everyone knows that a solution is necessary. However, someone will invariably ask “Why don’t you repair it?” as if that was a fantastic idea! And similar to that sad pitcher, the homeowner may think it’s best to get out her tools and engage in a DIY (Do It Yourself) service that will truly not end up well. In softball, the coach can simply remove the sad pitcher to prevent more losses. A homeowner’s wise choice is to call in a “ringer” in the form of a qualified heating, ventilation, and A/C worker to inspect the broken A/C unit and do the repairs. A HVAC mechanic will not be at a loss when asked to do the obvious job of getting your heating, ventilation, and A/C component running at its peak

Don’t Think of Elephants

Slow pitch softball is a wonderful sport for those not skilled enough to play baseball.

There is a league for everybody and most of the time it is a lot of fun with little pressure.

What commonly happens is that after a few seasons, the team gets better. With the addition of one or two “ringers” (or skilled players), a team begins to turn from just wanting to have fun to a team that wants to win. Expectations rise and the pressure to perform builds. This can be overwhelming to a pitcher tasked with lobbing the ball over the plate. The absolute worst thing a teammate or manager can say when a nervous pitcher “loses” the plate and begins to walk hitters is “Throw Strikes”. What do they think the pitcher is trying to do? It is like telling someone “Don’t think of elephants” which naturally leads to a mental image of the grey pachyderms. Homeowners face a similar dilemma when a furnace fails to ignite, or the air conditioner stops blowing cool air into the house. Everyone knows that a solution is needed but someone will invariably ask “Why don’t you fix it?” as if that was a novel idea. And like that nervous pitcher, the homeowner may feel pressured to get out his tools and perform a DIY (Do It Yourself) fix that will probably not end up well. In softball, the manager can simply replace the nervous pitcher to prevent more damage. A homeowner’s best move is to call in a “ringer” in the form of a qualified HVAC technician to inspect the broken HVAC system and do the repairs. Better yet, that tech will not be befuddled when asked to do the obvious task of getting your HVAC system running at peak efficiency.
