Summer is my favorite time of year! I truly love hitting up the beach, natural springs and even lakes.
Being in water is my favorite pastime when the weather is so intense.
However, some days are so intensely hot in this warm place that I live in, that the great indoors is simply the safer way to go. At that point, air conditioning is my saving grace! My best friend’s air conditioner broke once during the onset of a heat wave. I felt bad for her. I brought over a couple of portable air cooling units to help keep her cool until she could get it fixed. Not only are heating and cooling contractors tied up at this time of year, but the expense to update air conditioners in their peak season is ridiculous! One part, such as a condenser, can cost several times more than it would cost in the winter, simply due to demand. It was then that I learned how costly air conditioner repairs cost in the summer, so it is best to get it evaluated before it gets too hot, and your equipment is working more than it always does throughout the rest of the year. I sure wouldn’t want to spend more on a condenser than I have to. Thankfully, her parents were able to help her out, so she was able to get her equipment fixed up within a few days. That was still a pretty long time for her. I’m thrilled she is feeling cool again. Back to the beach I go!
