Every 10 years it seems like we have to replace the heating and air conditioning equipment in our home.
I guess that is the national average.
I wasn’t surprised when we had a repair appointment and received bad news about the condition of the air conditioning equipment. It was late during the afternoon when the repair technician gave us the bad news and they could not complete the new AC installation project until the next day. My wife and I didn’t mind waiting, especially since the sun was already starting to set. The next morning the crew arrived very early with everything necessary to complete the job. While the specialist was working on the installation job with, he offered to perform a free indoor air quality check. He planned to look at the ductwork and condition of the air filter. It sounded like a great idea and it was a free service. After that heating and air conditioning installation technician finished evaluating our ductwork, he tried very hard to sell us an air purifier. The guy had pictures of the ductwork and all of the dust and dirt. It was visibly unsettling, but I didn’t think an air cleaning machine was necessary. My wife and I thanked the gentleman for performing the service, but we emphatically insisted that we did not need to purchase an air cleaning machine. I didn’t care for the pushy guy and I even called to complain about his customer service skills. He was there to install the new machine and not to upsell me something that wasn’t necessary.
