I was so upset when I realized my air conditioning wasn’t turning on.
I tried to adjust the thermostat, but nothing was happening.
I wasn’t sure if it was the air conditioning unit or the thermostat. I thought maybe I could diagnose them. I went online to see if I could find a Q&A about the air conditioning and thermostat. I did a lot of search but there wasn’t anything I felt capable of doing. I called my best friend and she told me I should call the HVAC company. I told her she was crazy. There was no way I could afford to have the HvAC company come out and inspect the AC unit and the thermostat. If it was the air conditioning unit, I didn’t know if I could afford to have it fixed, or replaced if that was the case. After reading through the Q&A section about the thermostat, I was pretty sure that might be what was wrong. I considered calling my brother, who was an HVAC technician. I knew he would come to the house, but he was at the hospital with his wife and new baby. I didn’t want to bother him. The longer I sat there, the hotter it got in my house. I went to town and bought a new thermostat. I wasn’t sure how to install it, but there were some pretty good directions. I called my friend and she came over to help, even if it was just moral support. As soon as I had the thermostat installed, the air conditioning unit began to work.
