Since I fix car air conditioners, I thought I’d take a look at the unit and sort the issue
I’ve been working as an auto technician for a decade now, and I run my own auto shop in the city. This is sort of a family business since both my dad and grandpa were auto technicians. However, they worked for other bosses, but I chose to go into business. Now and then dad and grandpa come to the shop and spend time working on the older models. I’ve been so proud to teach them all the new car technology, and grandpa especially, eats it up. He still loves his classic cars, but the new models are also quite efficient. Dad on the other hand is fully into new models, and he drives the 2022 Toyota 4Runner. He does restore classic models for resale but rarely drives them. We are all hands on people, so we make sure to fix things back in our houses if they break or are faulty. This was the same mentality I had when I decided to fix my AC last summer. My partner mentioned there was something wrong with the AC since the house felt warmer each day. She tried adjusting the thermostat settings but nothing changed. We contacted the heating and AC business but they said it would be a day or two before an expert came to take a look at the faulty air conditioner. Since I fix car air conditioners, I thought I’d take a look at the unit and sort the issue. Well, I ended up causing the air conditioner to stop working, and nothing I did would turn it back on. I learned my lesson to leave the AC for the experts and focus on cars.
