You wake up. It’s 6 am. You hit the snooze button a few times. Now it’s 6:20. You turn off your air conditioner. You’re sick of the constant noise it creates but it needs to be on; it gets too hot in your little room in the third floor apartment. You notice the little red light on the unit alerting you the filter needs to be changed.
