A newer furnace
While the calendar in other parts of the United States has flipped forward to the fall season, it still feels like the summer to me. Of course, living in the south does not afford us the opportunity to feel the weather changes like other areas. I still have to use my air conditioner, and not just during the day. My A/C comes on every few minutes. In fact, just this morning, some type of electrical glitch was experienced. My lights flickered, and the air conditioner started to turn on with that familiar hum. However, then the electrical surge happened and the air conditioner turned back off very quickly. No more noise came from my A/C, even though the lights came back on quickly enough. My air conditioner was eerily and uncomfortably quiet… nothing but absolute silence. Since all the lights came back on, I anxiously awaited the return of my working air conditioner. Since the power surge that knocked out my air conditioning took place so early this morning, it was still dark outside. So I armed myself with my trusty flashlight and made my way to the electrical box, next to my outside A/C unit. Using my flashlight for guidance, I was able to find the electrical breaker that was marked for the air conditioning system. As I said a mental prayer, since I know nothing about how to fix things, including air conditioners, I flipped the A/C breaker off and then back on again. The hum of the air conditioning system was music to my ears as it roared back into action!
