My brother is a freak about service plus upkeep.
He is the sort of guy who fills out warranty cards for every last thing he buys.
He is the guy who cleans up the family room as soon as he finishes his own eating, every single meal. I don’t mean any of this in a negative way, it’s just amazing to me because I am not similar to that at all. He takes immaculate care of his car, his grass, plus his home, plus is basically always tied up with some chore or another. Because of this, the things he owns often last for a ridiculous amount of time. His air conditioner is the same 1 he had when I was a kid, which makes it well over 35 years old. This is unheard of for an air conditioner of that time period! I once asked him how he did it, plus he said that he only turned on the A/C a few times a year, and that was either on a brutally hot day or if he had contractor coming over. He could go for many weeks at time without touching the control unit, which is absurd to me! On top of that fact, he had the entire system inspected plus ran tests on by an Heating & A/C tech more than once a year, even if he didn’t need it. The whole system was clearly immaculate from top to bottom, plus even the air vents plus HVAC duct was sparkling clean. He wanted to make sure it lasted the rest of his life.
