When he saw the mess I made, he winced
When I had the ductless HVAC system installed, I thought I never needed to have it cleaned. I was told it was virtually maintenance free, and I shouldn’t need much repair work for the next ten years. Three years after having the ductless HVAC system installed, I noticed an odd odor in my house. I called the HVAC company and told them I was smelling mold. They sent an HVAC technician to the house, who promptly told me my indoor units needed flushed and cleaned. He said there was often mold that would form in the units, and they simply needed flushed. I didn’t think this HVAC system needed cleaned, but apparently they did. He wanted to make an appointment to clean the ductless system, but I said no. If all the needed was to be flushed, I was going to clean the ductless HVAC system on my own. Within minutes, I knew I had made a mistake. I had mold and slime on my carpets, and the water stank. I called the HVAC company and the technician who had been there two days earlier was the same one who showed up. I told him he was right, and i should never try to flush the HVAC system on my own. When he saw the mess I made, he winced. He said I should try to flush the HVAC system inside the house. He cleaned the HVAC system while I called a carpet cleaning company to clean up the mess I had made. I really screwed up this time; and all because I wanted to save a little money.
