My father always said that when the going gets tough, the tough get going.
I thought it was original to say that, but then I heard it in a song.
Well, I have changed the words a bit to suit my situation. When the going gets rough, you call the HVAC company. Let me explain this one to you, but it is really quite self-explanatory. A couple months ago, my furnace started sounding like it was having a really rough time starting. It would have like a hiccup, but it didn’t last all of the time. Then, after starting, it would have this little growly sound. That didn’t last long either. I started to wonder if there may be some dust inside the mechanism that was causing some irritation. I didn’t know anything about HVAC equipment, but I knew the air filter needed changing to stop the dust from clogging and getting into the equipment. I tried to change the air filter on my own, but I had a hard time even figuring out where the air filter was. I ended up calling the HVAC company and they walked me through changing the air filter. I was devastated at how disgustingly gross my air filter was. A couple weeks went by and the same thing began to happen again. I changed the air filter again, and it was disgusting again. I called the HVAC company and they came out to look at my furnace. Apparently there was a hole in the ductwork and it was causing a lot of dust to get into my system. The furnace was running really rough because of the dust and they had to repair the ductwork.
