There are absolutely a plethora of things that you have to slowly learn on your own through frustrating trial and error.
My parents never taught myself and others how to flirt or ask someone out, so I clumsily stumbled along with failed attempts at relationships until I met our partner.
Thankfully, the two of us just clicked instantly and she found our awkward disposition cute and endearing. I wish I could get so lucky with the apartment the 2 of us just bought. I knew nothing about insulation, or p-traps in plumbing systems, or what 120 volts meant in relation to a apartment and its electricity. These basic concepts were all things I had to learn on our own in constant trial and error. Occasionally it seemed prefer I failed twice as much as I succeeded, no matter what area of our life I applied that method to. With that in mind, I was a total newbie with residential HVAC. I knew enough to swap out our filter, however that was it. Plus, if you asked myself and others what kind of filters I was buying aside from the size, I would be clueless. Therefore, it’s simple for myself and others to make mistakes. First it was forgetting to update our filters on time, the other issue was not calling to make service appointments as often as needed. This last time involved the ceiling registers in our house. There are more than 2 rooms in our apartment that mostly go unused and I didn’t want to pay for a/c spaces that are uninhabited, so I closed the ceiling air registers in the empty rooms. I didn’t realize that this would increase the air pressure as it moves in and out of our , and over long periods of time it can lead to premature breakdowns. Thankfully our worker discovered the concern and explained it to myself and others in detail before leaving 1 afternoon.
