I was able to fix the air conditioning myself last summer when it froze up.
This was a huge deal for me, since I have never really been able to fix anything myself in my entire life.
I have never been what you would call a handy kind of guy. I don’t even know how to change a lightbulb or unclog a drain. It’s just not something that I am gifted with, for some reason. I know a lot of other things, though. For instance, I’m super smart when it comes to computers and vocabulary words. I’m just not good at fixing things in real life! Anyway, last summer we had a record heat wave around where I live. The temperature was up in the triple digits and it literally never gets that hot around here! People were calling their HVAC companies right and left because they couldn’t get their air conditioning systems to keep up with the demand that the temperature was placing on them. I had my own problems at my house when I realized that the temperature in the house was going up instead of down when I had the A/C running. Apparently, I had the air conditioning on for so long that all of the condensation caused it to freeze up somehow! I turned the whole thing off for a while because I thought it made sense to let it thaw out. Even though I got really hot and uncomfortable during the time that I left it turned off, when I turned it back on, it started working again!
