I grew up without air conditioning in Chicago because central air came out much later in my life. As a new bride in the early 60’s, I still had no clue as to how the whole cooling system worked.
After we moved to Florida into a house without a modern cooling system, on one extremely hot and humid day, my husband and I followed our neighbors’ lead and had a cooling system installed in our suburban home. We hired a young guy who installed air conditioning units as a part time job. Being green and inexperienced in business transactions, hubby and I made a silly mistake; we didn’t ask enough questions of the installer and barely paid attention to what he did tell us. After a few days we couldn’t help but notice that the house was getting uncomfortably cold. Frustrated, we called AC Repair Pinellas Park and had them come out to fix whatever was going wrong. Boy! Did we have “egg on our face” when we were told that the only problem was that the thermostat needed to be set to a higher temperature. In our failure to learn the basics of air conditioning when it was first put in, we missed a very important step and it cost us some money that we could have avoided spending.
