My wife was extremely disappointed when our HVAC system started having issues.
When I had an HVAC professional come over, he even started freaking out about the air filter not being changed. He said that was the dirtiest air filter he had ever seen and it must had been longer than 6 months since it was last changed. I tried to get the guy to calm down, but my wife ended up overhearing what was going on. She freaked out when she learned that I hadn’t changed the air filter and her and the HVAC technician were making me feel like garbage. Okay, I get it, I need to change the air filter regularly or the HVAC system is going to struggle and have issues. I know that now and I just hope my wife can drop it all and leave me alone. Now whenever we get into a fight, she has to bring up the thing about me being incompetent when it comes to taking care of simple tasks like taking care of the air filter changes. She calls me a little baby because I don’t know how to do anything. I don’t think any of that is fair though, but it’s true that we could have avoided those HVAC troubles and expensive repairs if I would have simply changed the air filters regularly. I’m actually thinking about enrolling into an HVAC service plan so I don’t have to deal with this kind of stress anymore. Even then, I’m sure my wife would find something to be disappointed about.
