The odds are against you having a total program breakdown if you skip one cleaning but that increases greatly with continued neglect as moving parts wear out plus dirt accumulation makes the Heating plus Air Conditioning program work harder
If you play roulette, the choices are playing American type or European style. The American roulette wheel has an extra slot, the yellow double zero. It decreases the odds of any number coming up on a single spin to 2.63% (1 in 38) from 2.70% (1 in 37) so the “wise” choice is to find a European wheel. If you do hit on a single number, your payout is only $35 for every $1 bet so the best roulette advice anyone can give you is to stay away from the wheel plus appreciate a nice meal at the casino buffet. There’s a fourth type of roulette that involves no cash transaction plus the odds are about 83.33% (5 in 6) that you will escape unharmed. If you do lose at Russian Roulette, your family may be able to collect your life insurance assuming your policy covers loss of life from an accidental gunshot. No one in their right mind will willingly play Russian Roulette but Americans do take a risky gamble every time they decide to forego their semi-annual Heating plus Air Conditioning cleaning plus tune-up. The odds are against you having a total program breakdown if you skip one cleaning but that increases greatly with continued neglect as moving parts wear out plus dirt accumulation makes the Heating plus Air Conditioning program work harder. The odds are higher that, in particular climates, mold plus mildew will form in the Heating plus Air Conditioning’s ductwork making your house smell like a pile of dirty socks. The real danger is if your oil furnace’s heat exchanger begins to leak due to the constant contraction plus expansion when the oil furnace is in operation. Carbon Monoxide is just as lethal as that bullet resting in the chamber of that pistol waiting for someone to play Russian Roulette.
