When my air conditioner stopped working, I did appreciate the positive impact I was having on the environment by not running it all day long, but that quickly went away when I realized how hot it was. I was sweating bullets in less than an hour. I had a fan, but it was just blowing around the same hot air. Opening the windows didn’t do much to lower the temperature, because the air was just as hot outside. My only options were to call for HVAC repair in NYC, or sit in front of the refrigerator in my underwear all day long.
I went with the air conditioner repair, but the refrigerator did sound pretty tempting. A well placed call and a short amount of time was enough for the repair man to come to my home. He popped open the air conditioner and looked on the inside just like a surgeon who was digging around inside the human body. He located the root of the problem and went to his truck to get a replacement part. Watching him work was like seeing a magician perform a complicated magic trick. You don’t really know what is going on while the trick is happening, but once it’s done, you’re left in amazement at how well it worked.
The air conditioner let out a rumble as it turned on again and cold air rushed through the vents. The temperature on the thermostat began to go back down and the air became cooler. The repair man had sweat a few bullets during the repair process because of how hot the temperature was in my home. Hopefully next time something on my air conditioner decides to break, it will wait until the winter. I don’t think I can take another season of having an in home sauna.
