This control unit does what it should
I can’t remember the last time that the weather outside was so cold. It has really started to take a toll on the elderly in our community. Our normal temperatures are closer to 40 or 50 degrees, this time of the year, but lately they are hovering around the mid 20”s. My grandparents are having a really hard time staying warm and when I was visiting they said that something must be wrong the the HVAC system. I checked the thermostat and found that they had it turned up to 74 degrees. The house definitely didn’t feel that warm and I worried that they might get ill in the cold temperatures. When I sat down to talk with them about this they said that many of their friends and neighbors were in the same predicament. I could just be the fact that many homes were not insulated enough but I think in my grandparents case, it had more to do the the aging HVAC system that they have in their home. It feels so chilly inside of the house, and it doesn’t feel comfortable to me either. I asked my grandfather for the name of the HVAC dealer that they normally used and gave them a call. I was going to be staying a few days anyway and wanted to see if there was a way I could help with the situation. The HVAC dealer came out to look things over and discovered some issues with the ductwork but other than that, the system was fine. I am hoping that the weather improves soon because they can not stand being cold all the time and the cost of keeping the temperatures up that high is going to cut into their budget.
