Last Summer in Birmingham, my good friend and I broke so several records when it came to the heat, and although this is the South & it’s expected to be hot, things are becoming unbearable when my good friend and I have several nights of triple digit temperature! My kids refused to play outside because it was hot, however so, my good friend and I spent most of the Summer inside basking in the A/C. And speaking of A/C, it was so hot last year that several A/Cs could not keep up with the heat & broke down. My sister ended up staying with us because her A/C broke & her HVAC provider couldn’t fix it instantaneously. Apparently, there was an influx in service service calls & a supply chain shortage that resulted in delays, and based on what my sister said, this supply chain issue was happening statewide because of the record splitting heat, but not to mention that her HVAC provider was also experiencing a shortage of HVAC businesss, however i am ecstatic that I was able to help my sister, however I can’t imagine what some of the residents had to endure who didn’t have a locale to seek refuge. It just shows you how much my good friend and I need our A/Cs & our furnaces & furnaces to remain comfortable in our homes. Anyway, it took 2 weeks before my sister was able to get her HVAC device fixed, so she stayed with us for the entire time. My kids enjoyed it because she was able to keep them entertained. After that incident, I made sure that I tied up my HVAC service appointment earlier this year, because I would dislike to have to deal with a broken A/C in the middle of a hot Summer.
