But when we got into our new house, we had the latest and greatest when it comes to residential heating and air conditioning
So tip of the day is be sure to get a few extra heating and air conditioning air filters for the holidays if you like to burn candles. This is an HVAC lesson that l learned the strenuous way. I nearly choked out my heat pump in the process. It all started when we moved into our new home just after we were married. My wife is the sort of lady who gets so far into Christmas. It’s like she’s thinking about it before I even get the heating and air conditioning maintenance on the heat pump for the winter. I do that in the early fall. So this lady is a committed Christmas junkie. That comes with a whole bunch of candles burning at least once a day. And on the weekends, that would be burning all day. So that’s a lot of burnt wax in the air. Guess where it wants to collect? That’s right, it’s the HVAC return where it can end up coating the HVAC air filter. I was not at all aware of this as I hadn’t particularly experienced this sort of thing with the shabby heating and air conditioning component we had in our first and only apartment. But when we got into our new house, we had the latest and greatest when it comes to residential heating and air conditioning. This thing sucked up every bit of the burnt wax in the air and coated the air filter nearly completely. Thankfully, I noticed that the heat pump was particularly cycling on and off so ended up checking the air filter and saw what had happened.
