At my beach apartment one day, I noticed the heating and AC component was continually running. The apartment was cool, so I really had not paid too much attention to the air conditioner. Later that night, while lying in bed, I realized, again, that the air conditioning had not turned off. My partner said he’d look at it in the evening. When I came down for dinner, my partner was already hard at the task of trying to solve the concern of the running air conditioner. He had studied online that it was more than likely the thermostat, which could legitimately be replaced. Off he went to the local beach apartment improvement store to purchase a thermostat. Now, my partner is an intelligent man, in addition to I’ve seen him service many things I thought could never be fixed–I was confident he would be able to install a new thermostat. That night, as we both lay in bed, we were listening as the air conditioner continued to run, refusing to shut off even though a new thermostat had been installed. Thankfully, the next day was a Sunday; my partner would be safely away at his job while I called for a heating and AC supplier to come look at our air conditioner problem. The worker arrived at our beach apartment later that day, took a single look at the thermostat. It’s the wrong kind he said, adding that most home improvement stores usually end up selling their customers the wrong kind of thermostat for heating and AC units. With the new and correct thermostat installed, the air conditioning component was good as new by the time my partner arrived home to the beach apartment from work.
