Now that I write about HVAC for my job, I notice it all of the time. I get paid to write, proof and the post HVAC related content. It is not too glamorous, but it pays the bills. Because of constantly talking about heating and cooling, I noticed it everywhere. Every building has some form of HVAC. How well they take care of the HVAC equipment is entirely different though. I recently was on a roadtrip with my mom and we stopped at a little gas station to pee and get snacks. In the bathroom there was a ductless mini split air conditioner. The mini split cooling device is really modern, sleek looking and efficient. The gas station AC unit was not like this at all. I could see the dust clogging the vents in the AC unit. You are supposed to get cooling service at a bare minimum once a year. Really, two times a year for AC service makes sense. Get the air conditioner cleaned and prepared before the hot season comes. After a full season of cooling, the AC should be inspected before it rests. The gas station cooling system clearly had not been looked at in forever. The dust not only hinders production of the AC, but ruins the air quality. I was totally disgusted by the condition of the air conditioner. I don’t think anybody else would look up and incept the AC unit though. It is all because of my job that I did. Now I am obsessed to find another mini split and see if most of them get gross.
