We are lucky that our apartment in Delhi has air conditioning in the living room and bedrooms. I can't really imagine living there during the hot months without it. I (naively) thought they had to be serviced only every six months. How wrong I was! The a/c guys showed up, took one look at the filter in the living room unit and asked when I had it cleaned last....umm...I asked them how often I should have it clean....they said every three months...oops. No wonder we had been all coughing and unhealthy. Then, I saw what came out of the filter. I am definitely never forgetting to have the a/c serviced!
He was smiling before the cleaning started:
This is what came out the backside:
For the boys' room, they took the whole thing out of the wall and outside for a good washing:
Again, never forgetting the three-month cleaning...
