It’s quite a beautiful October day, and I definitely want to go to the beach today. I need to get some groceries at my local supermarket first, and then I’m immediately headed to the beach to relax. It’s 70 degrees outside, and the skies are blue, so I’m going to grab my beach chair and my towel and head out quite soon. I just need to finish a few articles on my laptop, and then I’ll be starting my day. There’s one other stop that I need to make today. My air conditioner has been acting up as of late. I noticed that my energy bill was a lot higher than I was used to this past month. I have noticed that the temperature in my apartment seems to be far lower than usual. This has been going on for a few weeks now. The strangest thing about it is that the thermostat is reading the same exact temperature that it always does, but the feeling in the air just doesn’t match what it says. Perhaps the thermostat itself is broken and needs to be repaired. Perhaps the condenser coils need a good cleaning. But, in any case, I’ll be stopping by my local HVAC business to ask some questions about what I’ve been experiencing. I’ll be getting service from them as soon as I can. It makes me think that signing up for an HVAC maintenance plan might be in my best interests. That way, regularly scheduled maintenance visits will put my mind at ease! Ever since the landlord made it our duty to maintain our own air conditioner units, the rent has gone down, so I’m not complaining.
