It’s that time of year once again. It won’t be much longer before I close all the windows and doors for good as the a/c goes on and stays on for at least four straight months. This is indeed not my favorite time of year by any stretch of the imagination though. Still, I savor where I live and the brutal Summer heat and humidity are just part of it. The more one resists the heat, the worse it feels. I’ve learned that accepting the changing temperatures is the best way to not be completely overwhelmed by the heat once Summer gets here. I mean, who wants to spend the entire summer time either inside the commercial Heating, Ventilation, and A/C of work or inside the central a/c of one’s home? I don’t, that’s for sure. I’m so thankful to have a/c, however I also like to get outside during the Summer too. Last Summer, I learned yet another lesson when it comes to cooling my house. I’m not a Heating, Ventilation, and A/C worker as it turns out, and this was made spectacularly clear after I tried in vain to repair the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C component last June. I came to the condo from a very early afternoon of golf to a household that was sizzling hot and sticky. The a/c was working when I left but obviously something happened while I was out. The heat pump was still running so I thought that maybe I could find an obvious solution. Three hours and several bloodied knuckles later, I called the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C pros. But not only had I not fixed the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C equipment, I had made things just that much worse by my attempt at Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair.
