We should have taught our daughters how to change air filters

We think we should have shown our daughters how to change the air filters in their Heating and A/C units at their apartment.

  • They were residing on their own for the first time while attending school.

We bought our daughters a whole box of air filters that matched their Heating & A/C unit and we changed the seasoned air filter for them. We didn’t think that something as easy as an air filter change would be something that had to be taught. Later on when we went to visit them, we were shocked at the awful air quality in their apartment. We asked our daughters if they were not changing the air filters. They shrugged and said that they weren’t sure how to change them. We thought they might at least look up how to do that if they were unsure or call us up. We would have helped them. Our daughters said they were so stressed with their studies and work that they just didn’t have the time. When she got home from work, it was usually too late to call us up anyway for something like changing an air filter for the Heating & A/C system. Since we had this conversation, we chose to tackle this problem instantly. We showed our daughters exactly how to get to the seasoned air filter to pull it out. It was in a slot directly next to the Heating & A/C unit that fit into the ductwork. The air filter was easy to pull out and put in the new one. Although we had to stress that they needed to make sure the arrow was pointing in the right direction because you didn’t want to install the air filter backwards. Our daughters were surprised at how easy it was to do, and they never had issues with air quality after that.
