I realize that I really messed up with my HVAC system maintenance, but I was not too happy with the way the HVAC technician was talking to me about it.
I ended up calling the HVAC company to see what was wrong with my HVAC system.
I haven’t owned my home for very long and I don’t really know much about taking proper care of an HVAC system. The HVAC technician was giving me a really hard time when he looked at the air filter. He actually threw it down on the floor and dust went flying everywhere. He told me that was what I was breathing and that was choking the life out of my HVAC system. He was acting like a parent lecturing a child about not eating vegetables or something. I really didn’t appreciate it and I told him to get the hell out of my house. He still charged me for the service call even though he didn’t do anything but insult me. I called that HVAC company and explained what happened and how I was not okay with the way that HVAC technician treated me in my own home. They said they would discipline the HVAC technician for that, and they agreed to give me my money back. I ended up going with another HVAC company and I had a more reasonable HVAC technician. He explained how important it is to change the air filters regularly, but in a calm and reasonable way. I learned a lot about how important it is to change the air filters and call for regular HVAC system maintenance.
