When I got home from work, the house felt like a sauna! I didn’t understand and thought that maybe the air conditioner was broken.
This morning, I woke up and the weather was significantly warmer than it’s been lately. I guess the spring season is finally setting in and here to stay. While it’s been fairly warm outside, we haven’t had temperatures this nice in months! On my way out the door heading to work, I turned on the air conditioner so that the house would have a chance to cool down. Normally, I don’t leave the air conditioner running all day. However, I wanted to give the unit a chance to warm up and circulate air since it had been so long since I used it last. All day long, I looked forward to coming home to my cool house. I am a big fan of summer and warm weather, so I was excited to return to that. The winter dragged on this year, and I am so over the cold weather. When I got home from work, the house felt like a sauna! I didn’t understand and thought that maybe the air conditioner was broken. I soon realized that there is no way that the house would be that hot, even if the air conditioner didn’t start up, because it wasn’t nearly that hot outside! After a few moments of confusion, I realized that I had cranked the heat up, not the air conditioning. I was so mad at myself! Not only was this a massive waste of heat and energy, but my house was now hot and stuffy for no reason! I quickly corrected my error and switched on the air conditioner. However, the house did not cool down for several hours. I definitely won’t make that mistake again!
