I have been throwing away reusable ac filters out of ignorance

Ignorance is indeed no defense.

As a resident in a humid and windy part of the country, you would think that I have mastered the art of managing the temperature of my home, but no.

I was far from it. It was embarrassing to even talk about how I throw away things I should be keeping. I wondered how many things I had thrown away that I could have kept or re-used. Save money! Anyway, we all learn from mistakes, but wasting money buying reusable ac filters as one-time-use parts is not something I expected to be on my list. You would wonder why I even buy such parts independently when I could just ask an HVAC technician to get one and fix it. Right? Well, I am a DIY kind of person. That is why I monitor the air quality in my home and have knowledge of some ac repairs. I rarely call for home services unless I need thorough HVAC maintenance, which by the way, has happened twice, and no HVAC professional alerted me about my mistakes since I mentioned I changed the filters myself. Ironically, I learned about my mistake when I visited the usual HVAC company to buy new ones for my air conditioner and met someone new who explained the difference when he inquired how I installed the filters in my air conditioning system. Having learned my lesson, I decided to keep his contact for help with indoor comfort whenever necessary. I don’t know how bad things would have gotten if I decided to service my ductwork and mess with the air duct or, worse, tamper with a more complicated HVAC unit.
