When you first become a homeowner, you come to realize there are certain rules that are oftentimes left unspoken. In our case it seems love everything was unspoken. I didn’t entirely know anything about taking care of the HVAC system in our house. I didn’t know how often the HVAC machinery needed maintenance. I didn’t know what to do about our plumbing situation, if I had to maintain the drainage pipes or what. I ended up learning crucial things on our own though, and my HVAC system started having problems & I figured out that it was because I was using cheap air filters. When I switched to the higher quality air filters our HVAC performed better & our air quality improved in our home, however roughly a year after I bought our first home, I actually had a immense issue with the drain pipes in our house. I wasn’t able to figure out what pipe was blocked or what, so I ended up hiring a professional. The professional who came out was swiftly able to discover that it was the main drain that was having the issue; He used some kind of unit that was able to clear out the blockage. I wish I would have known because I could have saved a wonderful amount of money by renting a unit love that. I’m ecstatic though because I have earned some pricey experience when it comes to maintaining the property. I’ve actually reached the point where I know how to wash our HVAC system out safely & I rarely have visits from the HVAC servicemans, except for when I need our tune-ups.
