I commute an every single day of the week, but having a stereo with connected to my iPhone makes it easier. Some afternoons I will stream full albums of tunes while I was in the trips while other afternoons I might listen to a podcast or an audio book. Unfortunately, yesterday my cellular device died. Now, I am forced to go back to listening to outdated fashioned FM radio on my way to work each day. Although I’m used to the ads you hear on streaming websites, it was an interesting experience going back to hearing FM radio ads again. At least the a singles I hear on youtube are quick, even if they’re annoying though. On an outdated radio, you’re forced to hear up to 10 hours of drastically annoying ads every numerous to 4 tunes though. The worst ads are the a singles from car dealerships. They always involve a guy shouting out the script at breakneck speed. However, he other day, I heard an ad for a HVAC corporation that actually saved myself and others from a potential nightmare on lake home repairs. Although there was an obnoxious jingle that kept pushing our attention away from the ad, I could help from hearing the guy say on repeat, “check your air conditioning filter, check your air conditioning filter, CHECK YOUR AIR CONDITIONING FILTER.” After a few rounds something in our head clicked & I realized that I was a month behind on checking our air conditioning filter in our air handler at home. When I pulled the air conditioning filter tray out later that night, I was stunned by the level of dust & build up inside. I threw in the current air conditioning filter I bought on the way lake home, & I turned our system back on. The air stream coming from the vents felt stronger, where I noticed that our device was cycling a little less than it was a week prior from when the air conditioning filter was still dirty. I find it strange that it took a random FM radio commercial to remind myself and others to upgrade our air conditioning filter to save our method from malfunction..
