I recall this terrible ordeal my family and I went through. We were in the middle of the summer during a terrible heat wave and our A/C entirely broke down on us. I don’t think we’ve ever been so overheated in our lives! This was actually turning into a very dangerous situation because we probably could have suffered a heat stroke! I bought a bunch of ice from the store and we kept it in the freezer. We just kept using ice to try and keep ourselves cool. My son even thought to put some ice in a container and blow the fan over it for a little bit of cooling relief. That actually worked a little bit. It wasn’t like air conditioning, but it was certainly better than nothing! When I went to the store to try to find some window A/C units, I couldn’t find any because they were entirely sold out! It was such a difficult situation. I decided to put my family in a hotel until we could get a hold of an HVAC company to help us fix our A/C! It took a few days, but eventually I was able to get through to a place that was able to help us out! When our A/C was finally back on in our place, I swore that I would always handle our HVAC system maintenance before the harsh weather arrived. I never wanted to experience being overheated like that again! The whole time we were suffering through that experience, I was thinking it could have been avoided simply by having an HVAC tune up before the heatwave arrived.
