Don’t be Stupid and Ruin Your HVAC

I get older and I think I get stupider. Or maybe it’s just I often feel awash in so much unnecessary, repetitive motion. My kids are right in that teenage sweet spot that will straight melt a mind. Couple this with a demanding career and I often find myself simply gazing off while the HVAC blows cool air on my face. It’s these little moments which both scare me and make me feel like life is worth living. However, this can’t be a good sign. There are just so many things to get done but, they feel like they are just the same thing over and over again. I write out the lists like I am supposed to. This helps me stay on track with my family errands and responsibilities. But, I still get overwhelmed which leads to me forgetting something important. In my house, I am the person responsible for all things HVAC. My plan was to push this off on my son. When I asked him to be responsible for the operation of the HVAC, he looked at me like I was asking him to fly a plane. My wife saw right through it. I was stuck with the HVAC stuff. It’s mainly just remembering to change the HVAC air filter at least every 30 days. This is one of the things that just can’t be forgotten. The other is to be sure the HVAC unit gets maintained in the spring and again in the fall. I also try to take a look to make sure the HVAC unit outside is free of leaves so it’s getting maximum air flow. It really isn’t all that big a deal. I just want less on my plate I guess.
