We had a really cold winter last year and the cold temperatures really ended up throwing us for a loop when the spring finally came along.
I know that sounds weird, but the thing is that we ended up finding out that our A/C was torn up when the weather started heating up.
The temperature outside was heating up at last and the ice and snow was all finally melting into the ground. We had a freak heat wave and that’s when we actually turned the air conditioning on for the first time. When the A/C refused to turn on, that’s when we found out that it wasn’t working. We flipped the switch on the A/C, but nothing happened. We tried again and again, and still nothing. Then my husband went to check out the central air conditioning system in the basement and that didn’t yield any results, either. We couldn’t figure out what the issue was until he ended up going outside to look at the exterior A/C condenser unit out behind the garage in our backyard. Apparently, during all of the cold weather, a giant tree branch had snapped off and landed straight inside the fan on the condenser unit! It was stuck right in between the fan blades and it ended up tearing up the air conditioning unit. It was a freak accident, that’s for sure. I never thought that our air conditioning unit would get torn up during the winter instead of during the summertime! Now, we have to get a completely new A/C condenser unit for our HVAC system.
