I’m not an engineer, and I’m definitely not technologically informed about modern appliances. I’m about as in the dark about how modern technology functions as someone from the Middle Ages. If I was dumped into the wilderness, I honestly could not recreate these technologies, even if given the resources to do so. All I know for sure is that if I flip a switch, turn a knob, or press a button, said unit should work. That’s why I was very frustrated with my air conditioning when I noticed one Friday that nothing but lukewarm air flowed from the vents. My A/C’s ability to cool down my house had been spiraling downhill, and this was the final straw. Now there was absolutely no cold air. I had no idea what the problem was, so I called an HVAC technician from the HVAC business I purchased the air conditioner from. The technician told me the problem was simple enough that even I could understand. There was a decent-sized leak in the A/C causing the refrigerant to deplete until there was nothing to cool the air, rendering the air conditioning useless. Thankfully, the issue had a quick fix. The technician just had to patch the hole and refill the A/C with freon. The maintenance was inexpensive, and within minutes, I was free to enjoy the fresh air blowing from my air conditioner once again.
