Cleaning HVAC filters in old house

Occasionally the bank sends us Heating, Ventilation & A/C professionals to look at a apartment that has been abandoned to see if the apartment heating & cooling are still current or if all of us need to install modern air conditioner or modern heating units in the house… It can be a difficult time but you have to do what you have to do to make money.

Yesterday I had to go to this apartment on old main street which is about multiple blocks from where I live to do our next task; The air filters were actually disgusting; Occasionally I question what people do to make things just straight gross, then like how did this family get gum in it? There was pet fur in the air filters as well, well I hope it was pet fur. I did not actually want to clean the air filters but they were washable air filters. I could just buy modern air filters but I had time to kill that day & it was actually our only task for that day. I just remember cleaning them forever & getting frustrated doing it! My neighbor called myself and others on the iPhone asking if I wanted to get supper but I was dedicated to completing this task. I figured if I can get this done & make sure the heating & cooling system works properly then I can have our day off doing whatever; After cleaning the air filter I tried turning on the heating & cooling system & nothing happened. Then a lightbulb hit, check the breaker box. The issue did sit with the breaker box & after turning that on the heating & cooling system worked care about a champ. Another apartment is done, tomorrow is a modern day.
