Living in the North had its challenges.
I enjoyed the section since the people I was with and I had a good contractor running, but plus, my family wasn’t too far away. Our home was in a charming neighbourhood, and the teenagers enjoyed their school. The only negative was the long and brutal winters. All of us had weeks of snow and ice, which wasn’t easy to cope with, and last winter, our air conditioning plan shut down. I wasn’t sure why because the people I was with and I had called an AC business over while in the fall to repair it. All of us could not stay in a chilly home, so the people I was with and I booked a hotel downtown. I telephoned the aircon maintenance and maintenance company the next day to come and check it out. When he arrived, my husband and I were waiting, and first, he checked the thermostat for any faulty wires, but it was working fine, so he proceeded to the indoor system. The HVAC expert had cleaned the air filter that Fall, so it did not have much dust and debris on it. Then, he proceeded to the outdoor air conditioning unit. When he opened it up, he noticed there was ice at the button. That was why the AC had shut down the previous day. It took some time and patience to thaw the ice and unfasten all the water. Some snow and ice must have fallen into the HVAC device despite being in a shaded area. Ice was interfering with the AC performance, which resulted in it going off. After fixing the issue and mending a few more faulty wires, he shielded the AC better from the snow and ice. It was a temporary solution, although he advocated the people I was with and I built the outdoor air conditioner a better structure. The structure would keep it away from dust, debris, snow, and ice while allowing air to flow easily.
