Not every HVAC filter is a washable filter

Moving out of your parents’ house comes with a lot the freedom.

It also comes with many responsibilities, which, to be honest, is not a fair trade.

Even the price of curtains will make you want to run back to your parents’ house and beg them to take you back, but it is a step in life we all need to take to grow, mature and build a life for ourselves. It was not until the second job that I moved out of my parents’ house. The house was more of a guest house that a homeowner was renting out. The house had a gas furnace for whole-home heating and a gas fireplace. The boiler installation only served that guest house since it was an ad and was not part of the original home. One of the terms was ensuring that I contacted the home services company twice or at least once a year for furnace/heater tune-up. The house was more of a studio with a front porch. I remember the first mistake I made was assuming that the filter was a washable filter like the ones we used at my parents’ house. It was my lucky day since the homeowner had called the heating corp to fix some issues with the ductwork in his home. He had also asked the HVAC repairman to conduct duct cleaning in my house as part of the ‘welcome package. When he finished with the HVAC duct, he came to my home only to find me in my attempt of cleaning. He informed me that that type of filter needed replacing. The heating provider also gave me a few energy-saving help tips to keep my energy bills low.
