Seeing there was a lot of grime on my air return vent and needed to change air filter

My husband and I have been living in our beautiful dwelling for about 20 years now.

There needs to be a lot of updating to it but my husband is not honestly handy. For example we had a doorknob cut and my husband didn’t get to it until two years later. There are times where I feel like when things cut he doesn’t care. Therefore a lot of the chores and repairs are put on me… I try to maintenance as much as I can but other times I just let the professionals maintenance it. For example our air return vent is between our basement and the stairs going to our first floor. I walked by it various times and did not seem to notice how dirty the vent was until one day I was carrying groceries up the stairs and I felt something fly into my face. It was a small ball of dust. I had no idea how to open the air return vent and I told my husband although he forgot about it. I was sleepy of waiting for it to be cleaned out so I called our local Heating and Air Conditioning serviceman and he came and cleaned the vent and upgraded the air filter. I had no idea that our air filter was in our air return vent, he said it was severely dirty and it looked like it had not been change for a honestly long time. I was so embarrassed to hear that, then now I make sure to call my Heating and Air Conditioning serviceman every 3 months for him to upgrade our air filter.
