Sometimes, electronics fritz out.
Sometimes, the electronics that fritz out are the things that make your life easier like, oh, a thermostat.
Sometimes a thermostat for your furnace, that is not connected in any way to your air-conditioner, completely freaks out and decides that, since it’s numbers go up to 88, it should try to heat up your house to 88 degrees.
Sometimes your central air unit, responsible for the air-conditioning of your home, has a thermostat that works juuuuuuust fine.
So, sometimes the air-conditioner feels like it’s too warm in the house, and it begins working to cool down the house to a nice, livable 75 degrees.
Also, there’s a natural weather thing that happens where, sometimes, it’s 85 degrees outside with a humidity reading of approximately 71,000%.
Aaaaaaaaand sometimes you come home to discover that ALL DAY LONG your air-conditioner and furnace have been battling for total domestic domination. The baseboards are scorching hot, the floor vents are ice cold. The temperatures in the house vary so much that the sweat you work up walking through the family room turns to frost crystals on your face by the time you’re through the kitchen.
Predicted utilities bills for the month of July: 71,000% of normal. There’s a fruit basket on the kitchen table. DTE Energy sent it as a thank you.
